VoX Communications and Paragon Wireless Announce the Use of WiFi VoIP and GSM Handsets at IMS Plugfest™

Event Scheduled for January 15-19 at the UNH InterOperability Lab; the hipi-1100™ and hipi-2200™ Dual-Mode Phones Will Be Featured on WiFi Service Over the VoX VoIP Network

CELEBRATION, FL and RICHARDSON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- VoX Communications Corp. a wholly owned subsidiary of eLEC Communications Corp. (OTCBB: ELEC) and Paragon Wireless Inc. announced today that they will participate in the IMS Forum Plugfest™ with both the Paragon Wireless hipi-1100™ and hipi- 2200™ handsets running on the VoX VoIP network during the week of January 15-19 at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab.

The Paragon Wireless handsets are dual-mode phones which utilize an IMS network for both WLAN and GSM services. Customers desiring the convenience of using the same phone device in the GSM, home and enterprise networks can also benefit from flat rate VoIP plans. For example, the VoX Unlimited VoIP plan will offer unlimited minutes over WLAN for $24.95 a month. The phone will use the VoX network whenever possible -- switching to a GSM network to utilize the more expensive, but ubiquitous cell phone service as needed.

"We welcome the innovative IMS services that industry leaders such as Paragon Wireless and VoX bring to the first IMS Plugfest event," said Michael Khalilian, chairman and president of the IMS Forum. "We have seen prototypes of similar devices; however, we are encouraged by the news that Paragon Wireless has a handset that is now readily available through OEM and ODM channels."

The IMS Plugfest event is scheduled for Jan 15-19, 2007 at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab in Durham, NH. The results of lab testing, as well as further demonstrations of both the Paragon Wireless handsets and the VoX WiFi VoIP services, will be presented at ITExpo Jan 23-26 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. The demonstrations will take place at the IMS Forum booth.
