Digifonica Announces Strategic Partner Agreement With Ghost Telecom



    TSX-V Trading Symbol: DIL

    VANCOUVER, July 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Digifonica International Inc. (TSX-V:
DIL, "the Company" or "Digifonica"), an Internet telecommunications Service
Provider ("ITSP") and technology licensing company, announced today that it
has entered into an agreement with Ghost Telecom Limited ("GTL") to fully
integrate Digifonica's IP Telecommunication backbone into GTL's low-cost
international calling for mobile phones ("Jabbrz") service. The fully
integrated service will enable subscribers with virtually any mobile handset
to make cheap international calls, make low cost calls whilst roaming, as well
as place free calls between Jabbrz subscribers and to their Skype contacts.
Digifonica and GTL have begun working on an alpha release of the project, with
expectation to release an invitation only Beta release in Q4, 2008. The scope
of the Beta release is expected to be the Europe and North America markets,
and global coverage anticipated under a full commercial release. Under the
terms of the agreement, a white label version of the Jabbrz solution will also
be developed to enable Digifonica to provide new and existing partners a
similar solution under their own brand names.
    The combined Digifonica/GLT solution will work on virtually any mobile
phone and does not require any special software to be installed. As such, the
combined Digifonica/GTL solution can be offered to almost 600,000,000 mobile
phone subscribers in Europe alone (Eurostat, "Number of Mobile phone
subscribers", 2006). With Digifonica partner plans starting as low as
(pnds stlg)5.99 (UK unlimited plan), the solution is highly competitive to
traditional Voice Over Internet Protocol ("VoIP") solutions and represents a
tremendous revenue opportunity.
    Michael Camilleri, co-founder and CEO of GTL, commented, "Jabbrz is
providing subscribers with a simple solution to communicate with their Skype
contacts without having to load any additional software onto their existing
mobile phones. Integrating Jabbrz with Digifonica enables us to expand the
range and quality of the telecommunications solutions that we offer our
subscribers while focusing on refining our core technologies!"
    In addition, Digifonica further announces that it has accepted the
resignation of Mike Bowerman as President and Director of Digifonica. Mike
Bowerman will continue to assist the Company wherever possible going forward.
    Digifonica is pleased to announce, subject to TSX Venture Exchange
approval, that it has appointed Gavin McMillan as President of the Company.
Mr. McMillan has 20 years of proven success with leading global
telecommunications companies such as AT&T, and as an entrepreneur providing
international solutions within the VoIP market. Mr. McMillan has provided
general management, business development, corporate finance and operations
expertise support to small cap companies within the high tech financial
sector.
    Mr. McMillan commented, "I am extremely grateful of the opportunity
provided to me. Digifonica has continued to refine the licensing and corporate
structure to identify with key market opportunities and I look forward to
further strengthening the Company as one of the leading global IP
telecommunications technology and service providers."
    In addition, the Company further announces that Richard Boxer and Gregory
R. Harris, both original Directors of Initial Capital Inc., the vehicle
through which Digifonica became a public company on the TSX Venture Exchange,
have also resigned as Directors of Digifonica. Digifonica would like to thank
Mr. Boxer and Mr. Harris for their support and assistance in the initial
transaction and the subsequent months, and wish them good luck in their future
endeavours.
