Sitestar Purchases Broadband Customers From USA Telephone

Company Acquires DSL Accounts in Second Transaction With Seller

LYNCHBURG, VA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - 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 purchased certain broadband digital subscriber line (DSL) accounts and related assets from USA Telephone. Last year, Sitestar closed a blockbuster deal with the Maine-based Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) in which it acquired nearly 40,000 dial-up subscribers sold and marketed under the Nationwide Internet, InReach Internet and DFW Internet brands. This transaction increases Sitestar's broadband base and supports the Company's strategy of diversifying its customer portfolio to facilitate sustained revenue growth.

Commenting on the acquisition, Frank R. Erhartic, Jr., CEO for Sitestar, said, "We are delighted that we could leverage our existing business relationship with USA Telephone to acquire additional customers. Sitestar has earned a reputation of being able to successfully acquire, integrate and support a myriad of ISP access and web hosting customers. DSL service is typically more immune to churn than dial-up and, for this customer base, we can achieve very attractive margins by utilizing our existing infrastructure and favorable supplier partnerships."

"On behalf of everyone at Sitestar," added Mr. Erhartic, "We welcome the former USA Telephone DSL customers and look forward to serving their Internet communication needs."
