Shift Continues Increased Rate of Subscriber Acquisition in Q3 2006

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 30, 2006) - Shift Networks Inc. ("Shift") (TSX VENTURE:SHF) announced today that it signed over 1,700 new subscribers for the third quarter of 2006, representing 425% growth over Q3, 2005. Shift's forward booked contracted revenues for the quarter were $1.8 million, an increase of 533% over Q3, 2005; total forward booked contracted revenue now exceeds $5.8 million. All Shift customers sign a minimum 36-month contract for business telephone services, purchase Shift phones, and a VoIP gateway to enable access to Shift's next generation network.

"We've continued to accelerate subscriber growth through the third quarter which tends to be cyclically lower due to the summer. We're also pleased to see more customers choosing our service because of the value it adds to their businesses, in addition to potential cost savings - a trend indicated by increases in our average revenue per subscriber in Q3 over the previous two quarters," said Shift Networks CEO, Trent Johnsen. "We anticipate a robust fourth quarter as we continue to innovate and grow our national network and roll out a number of new services not available from traditional Canadian telecommunications providers."
