TelePlus Signs With Pinpoint Wireless to Deploy Enhanced Wireless Phone Services in USA

With Larger Market Reach and Network Coverage, Companies Couple Full-Service Concierge/Translator Solutions With "In-Language" Wireless Internet Content and SMS Messaging

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2006 -- TelePlus Group, a pioneer in the field of international telecommunications, today announced a deal with Pinpoint Wireless, a leader in wireless PCS services, to offer enhanced telecommunication services to the rapidly growing wireless phone market. The deal combines TelePlus' low-cost, full-service concierge/translator product, 1TouchConnect™ (1TC), with Pinpoint's cutting-edge wireless voice and Internet services platform, resulting in a complete one-stop-shop for the international traveler. TelePlus' economic strategy as an MVNO aggregator will also generate a greater realm of U.S. coverage for customers through access to the established Pinpoint MVNO relationships with the U.S. T-Mobile GSM network and host of other domestic roaming partner relationships. TelePlus Group is currently finalizing an acquisition deal to become a part of Texxon Inc. (OTC BB: TXXN) and expects closing in about 25 days.

As an established MVNO in the telecommunications market, Pinpoint is a participating member of a worldwide GSM consortium and offers relationships with multiple wireless carriers including a leading national provider of voice services to over 268 million Americans, T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telecom, one of the largest telecomm providers in the world. These interactions with various partners/MVNO's open doors and enable TelePlus to reach a larger global market and optimum service coverage for customers. Developing a large worldwide market and building upon the reputable and solid network through MVNO relationships will also result in lower implementation costs and rapid roll-out time for TelePlus services.

"Pinpoint Wireless is very excited about the opportunity to serve TelePlus subscribers from foreign countries by enhancing the wireless experience while traveling," says Larry Aisenbrey, President and CEO of Pinpoint Wireless. "TelePlus is a unique player in the MVNO market in that they have targeted a predominant niche to provide quality and reliable services that are unsurpassed."

Pinpoint brings extensive expertise in the Internet services space to TelePlus Group. In addition to its wireless voice system, Pinpoint's enhanced services platform will enable TelePlus to deliver "in-language" wireless Internet content/data and SMS messaging to a new and existing customer base. Pinpoint provides GSM wireless technology offering significant advantages for the international traveler. As a member of the GSM North American Alliance and worldwide GSM Association, setting uniform standards for wireless quality, features, and functionality, Pinpoint assures consistent and superior coverage in the U.S. and potentially beyond. Combining the current TelePlus 1TC product and service model of around-the-clock, multi-lingual concierge and translator services with a new "in-language" web functionality, creates a seamless wireless phone bundle for international use. The added features also create opportunity for future business endeavors with advertising and marketing firms looking for new distribution platforms via ad-supported content.

"Working with Pinpoint Wireless offers an economic way to access to its growing service network and roaming relationships with T-Mobile and various other wireless carriers, allowing TelePlus to quickly establish a U.S.-based service footprint," says Claude Buchert, CEO of TelePlus Group. "Pinpoint's range of capabilities from digital PCS phones to broadband wireless Internet connections will become an important asset to the development of future wireless phone applications for TelePlus."

The TelePlus product provides travelers and tourists with a 24/7 live private assistant who functions as a translator, concierge or emergency dispatch in their native language.
