Voiceglo VoIP Surpasses More Than 1.8 Million Users

Thought I would share an email I literally just received, which has some VoIP numbers that contradict the Yankee Group's overall industry VoIP numbers. Yankee Group claims 1 million TOTAL VoIP subscribers by years end. This release itself states 1.8 million VoiceGlo VoIP users which already supercedes that without even including other VoIP players.

The email also contained a news release worth checking out.

(Note: my guess is that the Yankee Group's VoIP numbers are only the broadband VoIP provider subscribers to Vonage, AT&T CallVantage, Packet8, Lingo, etc. and not other forms of VoIP)

Email I received:
Consumers are starting to realize that VoIP is becoming a viable phone alternative to the rising cost of traditional phone services. In fact, Jupiter Research estimates that 12.1 million households in the United States will be using VoIP services by 2009. To that end, Voiceglo, a global, full-service Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications company and a leader in the VoIP industry, today announced that it has more than 1.8 million users of its proprietary, patent-pending Internet phone technology, GloPhone, with an average monthly growth rate of 122%.

The GloPhone was first offered to consumers in February 2004 as an affordable and convenient way to call friends and family throughout the world using a dial-up or broadband Internet connection on their computers. Since then, customers in more than 60 countries have acquired the GloPhone, a number that is quickly increasing as the network continues to expand domestically and internationally.

Over the past five months, Voiceglo has entered into several high profile marketing partnership opportunities with companies like Office Depot, Friendster, eDonkey and NeoPets to boost consumer awareness of the GloPhone, its innovative features, affordable pricing structure and, most importantly, global portability. GloPhone has received several honors for its achievements, including Frost & Sullivan’s Product Differentiation Innovation Award, SuperComm’s 2004 SuperQuest Award and the 2004 VoIP Service Provider Award by Internet Telephony magazine for its ability to rapidly accelerate market adoption of its patented, proprietary VoIP technology both domestically and internationally, and for its continued contributions to the overall growth of the VoIP industry.

Voiceglo Surpasses More Than 1.8 Million Users on Its Global VoIP Network

Consumers in More Than 60 Countries are Now Using Company’s Unique Web and PC-based Internet Phone Service to Connect with Friends and Family Throughout the World

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - OCTOBER 20, 2004 – Voiceglo (OTCBB: TGLO), a global, full-service Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications company, today announced that it has more than 1.8 million users of its proprietary, patent-pending Internet phone technology, GloPhone. The GloPhone was first offered to consumers in February 2004 as an affordable and convenient way to call friends and family throughout the world using a dial-up or broadband Internet connection on their computers. Since then, customers in more than 60 countries have acquired the GloPhone, a number that is quickly increasing as the network continues to expand domestically and internationally.

Over the past five months, Voiceglo entered into several high profile marketing partnership opportunities to boost consumer awareness of the GloPhone, its innovative features, affordable pricing structure and, most importantly, global portability. By teaming up with leading companies such as Office Depot, Friendster, eDonkey and NeoPets, Voiceglo has been able to provide GloPhone service to millions of consumers worldwide and break down the barriers that have restricted international phone communications due to cost constraints.

“Since Voiceglo first launched the GloPhone in February, we now have more than 1.8 million users globally, which is an impressive adoption rate in the VoIP market,” stated Edward Cespedes, president, Voiceglo. “We are confident that we will continue to see extremely strong customer growth within our GloPhone network in the United States and throughout the world. It is Voiceglo’s goal to have a GloPhone on every computer desktop in the world.”

Since launch, Voiceglo now has 1,820,157 users on its GloPhone network, with an average monthly growth rate of 122 percent, an example of how quickly consumers are starting to understand that VoIP is becoming a viable phone alternative to the rising cost of traditional telecommunications services. By integrating voice with its proprietary, patent-pending peer-to-peer technology, Voiceglo has been able to accelerate consumer adoption of VoIP and make significant contributions to the overall development of the global VoIP industry. In fact, according to Jupiter Research, 12.1 million households in the United States will be using VoIP services by 2009.

Although Voiceglo’s GloPhone was just introduced in mid-February 2004, the unique Web and PC-based VoIP service has already made a significant impact on the VoIP industry and has received several honors for its achievements with GloPhone, including Frost & Sullivan’s Product Differentiation Innovation Award, SuperComm’s 2004 SuperQuest Award and the 2004 VoIP Service Provider Award by Internet Telephony magazine for its ability to rapidly accelerate market adoption of its patented, proprietary VoIP technology both domestically and internationally, and for its continued contributions to the overall growth of the VoIP industry.

Voiceglo’s innovative way of combining free and low-cost global peer-to-peer broadband or dial-up VoIP with access to make and receive calls from conventional and wireless phones anywhere in the world, will allow the company to make continued gains in the industry and experience an even greater rate of phone activation within its next-generation VoIP network.
