Date: 3/13/2008 2:02:48 AM

Pingo (www.pingo.com), the online calling service from iBasis (NASDAQ: IBAS), today reduced the cost to call Pakistan by more than 30 percent. The lower Pakistan prepaid calling card rate is enabled by RateWatcher™, a Pingo feature that actively searches for opportunities to reduce costs for customers. Pingo has also announced that new subscribers can receive one hundred free minutes of calling to Pakistan by registering through the www.pingopakistan.com page, which also contains additional information on the offering.

iBasis is one of the top three carriers of international phone calls in the world, resulting in a buying power that enables Pingo to consistently deliver extremely competitive rates. Customers save on calls to both landline and mobile phones in almost every country, with mobile phone users saving as much as 90 percent on international calling.

Pingo offers highquality, lowcost international and long distance calling on a prepaid basis without any long term contractual obligation. The service can be used with both fixedline and mobile phones and no additional equipment purchases or software downloads are required. Pingo minutes can be easily purchased online with credit/debit cards and PayPay. Subscribers can make payments in four currencies, compare rates in more than 38 other currencies, and interact with a Pingo website that includes automated voice prompts in five languages.

Pingo is designed with easeofuse in mind and offers a host of convenient features. Accounts can be setup to automatically recharge at a predetermined balance, or, an interactive voice response system can be used to alert customers of a low balance, allowing funds to be replenished with the simple push of the * key. Once mobile and/or fixedline phones have been registered online, enhanced speed dialing enables customers to call a local Pingo access number and press a designated speeddial number for fast and easy connection to calling destinations. Other features include PINless dialing, online call history reporting, a ReferaFriend program that offers a $5 bonus for each customer referral that joins Pingo and more.

iBasis also recently launched a version of Pingo with advanced features designed for enterprises. PingoBusiness provides smalltomedium size businesses (SMBs) the same low international calling rates, plus easytouse administrative features for managing up to 999 individual employee accounts on an “on demand” basis without longterm contracts. Through PingoBusiness, SMB employees can use company phones, as well as their own fixedline and mobile phones to achieve up to 90 percent cost savings on international calling. The service offers the same convenience features as Pingo with additional functionality to help SMBs exercise better control over international calling expenditures. This includes the ability for administrators to set individual spending limits and easily monitor usage and manage account balances through a single, centralized account.

“Pingo leverages the scale and efficiency of the iBasis global VoIP network to bring consumers and SMBs low cost, high quality international and long distance calling, supported by convenient features and the ability to use existing fixed and mobile phones without additional equipment,” said Jayesh Patel, vice president of business development and strategy for iBasis. “Furthermore, there are no extended contracts subscribers simply place funds in an account, register their phones, and in minutes they can begin taking advantage of our low rates. Pingo is easy, reliable, flexible, and the most effective option available for defraying international calling costs.”
