MCLEAN, VA – August 7, 2007 – Lingo (www.lingo.com), a leading consumer and small business voice over IP (VoIP) Internet phone service provider, today launched Lingo Small Business, an innovative offering of three customized calling plans designed to give small office and home office [SOHO] entrepreneurs the communication tools they need to grow and save.

“Lingo is rewarding a thriving entrepreneurial spirit across the land of opportunity with a great new opportunity of its own – three calling plans tailored to meet the unique needs of small and home office business owners,” said Srinath Narayan, vice president of consumer markets for Lingo. “Lingo Small Business offers small businesses a competitive edge with two business phone lines for the price of one and peace of mind that comes from three affordable calling options, a set of productivity tools long reserved for big business, and a provider that's in it for the long haul.”

Lingo Small Business services run on a customer's high-speed Internet connection and existing phone and phone number to provide three distinct tiered calling plans for the smart small business.

All plans include the Lingo Small Business Office Assistant, an exclusive package of productivity tools, including a free second phone line that can be used for voice or fax to generate more business; critical conferencing services to close the deal; simultaneous ringing and call forwarding services to help avoid missed business calls and opportunities; voice mail that automatically transcribes into email; and more than 20 other Lingo calling features that can be easily managed 24/7 directly from Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox. In addition, Lingo Small Business comes with free Lingo equipment, a $50 value.

The Lingo Business Value Plan is an ideal program for budget-minded businesses, providing a host of features for only $39.95 per month, including 500 anytime minutes for outgoing calls within the U.S., to Canada and Puerto Rico, additional minutes at a flat rate of 3.5 cents per minute and low international rates to 230+ countries.

Lingo's Business Plus Plan offers the same great Business Value Plan features, plus an upgrade to 2000 anytime minutes of calling throughout the U.S. and to 22 countries for $49.95 per month.

The Lingo Business Premium Plan is a robust calling plan that delivers unlimited local and long distance calling within the U.S. and to 25 countries for $79.95 per month. Unlimited and unmatched international calling enables small businesses to dial up some of the world's most popular calling destinations and business centers, including Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Austria, China, Luxembourg, Vatican City, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan. Attractive base plan international rates apply in most other countries around the world.

For an additional $10 per month, Lingo small businesses can go global overnight. By posting their own Lingo international phone numbers on their web site, Lingo small businesses can offer their international clientele and prospects an easy, no cost way to reach them back in the U.S. with a local call.

For only $4.95 per month, small business owners can open the door to new business nationwide with their own Lingo toll-free 800 number, which enables customers and potential customers to call free of charge from anywhere in the U.S.
