Zoom Begins Shipping VoIP Products To Nationwide Retailers
VoIP ADSL modems with bundled Global Village™ service ship to leading computer retailers

Boston, MA, September 23, 2004 - Zoom Technologies [NASDAQ: ZOOM], announced that today it began shipping the first product in its ZoomTel™ Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) product line to five prominent U.S. computer products retailers – CDW, CompUSA, Micro Center, PC Connection, and PC Mall.

The first product in the ZoomTel line is the ADSL X5v, a DSL modem with a built-in VoIP jack that lets users make VoIP calls using “plain old telephones.”. The X5v is bundled with Zoom’s Global Village VoIP phone service, which offers users a unique pay-as-you-go way to discover the revolutionary benefits of VoIP.

With the X5v and Global Village, users can make free VoIP to VoIP calls right out of the box. They can also register for one of several Global Village calling plans that provide low-cost direct dial service to virtually any phone in the world, including a pay-as-you-go service with no monthly minimum service charge. Global Village also offers unlimited dialing plans. Other VoIP companies typically require an advance payment and a monthly charge.

In addition, the X5v’s VoIP jack effectively provides two-line capability for DSL users, allowing customers to make VoIP or regular calls over a single DSL-enabled phone line.

“ We are pleased with the support our first VoIP product has received from prestigious computer product retailers in the U.S.,” said Frank Manning, President of Zoom Technologies. “The X5v makes it easy for people to try VoIP while enjoying the benefits of a powerful multi-function DSL modem. We welcome comparisons to Vonage and AT&T’s offerings, because we provide powerful, easy-to-use VoIP without requiring customers to sign up for a monthly commitment.”
