Sitestar Acquires Nationwide, InReach and Other Narrowband Customers From USA Telephone

Addition of Nearly 40,000 Subscribers to Double Revenues of Company

LYNCHBURG, VA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2007) - Sitestar Corporation (OTCBB: SYTE), a provider of residential and business Internet access, web hosting and value-added products and services, announced today that it has acquired nearly 40,000 dial-up subscribers from USA Telephone, a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) headquartered in Maine. The transaction, which is the largest deal Sitestar has consummated to-date, will double the Company's revenue, and will help accelerate expansion through additional customer acquisitions and fuel new-growth initiatives in web hosting services and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

The acquisition includes USA Telephone's narrowband Internet access subscribers. USA Telephone will continue to provide broadband Internet access, web hosting and other voice-related services to its customers.

"This acquisition of nearly 40,000 subscribers marks an exciting and key milestone for Sitestar," said Frank R. Erhartic, Jr., CEO for Sitestar. "By doubling our revenue stream, not only does this transaction help advance our objective of becoming one of the leading independent ISPs but, more importantly, puts Sitestar on a steeper growth trajectory, enabling us to complete more deals and pursue larger customer bases, while also generating the operating capital needed to invest in new and opportunistic business segments."

Sitestar anticipates the transition process to be seamless and smooth. "We're delighted to welcome the former USA Telephone narrowband customers to Sitestar and promise to provide an uncompromisingly high level of service and support," said Mr. Erhartic.
