(Orem, UT) - November 29, 2001 - Q Comm International, Inc. (OTC BB: QCCM), a prepaid wireless technology and information services company, announced today that it has signed an agreement with InternetSpeech, a San Jose, California-based provider of netECHO voice Internet technology, to distribute voice-activated Internet service through Qxpress™ point-of-sale activation (POSA) terminals.

The new prepaid service enables those who purchase an InternetSpeech personal identification number (PIN) through Qxpress™ to dial a number and connect to the Internet using any wireline or wireless phone. Once online, users speak commands into their phones to surf web sites, search for information, and check and respond to email. InternetSpeech’s netECHO service enables users to get news, weather, horoscopes and more by translating web-based information and reading it using text-to-speech technology.

The netECHO service is intended for people who are on-the-go, such as wireless phone subscribers, and those without a computer.

"The prepaid industry continues to expand with new product offerings like voice access to the Internet," said Paul Hickey, Chief Executive Officer at Q Comm International, Inc. "While prepaid wireless, long distance and dial tone are most commonly sold through Qxpress terminals at retail locations around the country, there’s great promise in many additional services like prepaid Internet access, prepaid credit cards and more."

"We’ve invested considerable effort in designing our Qxpress system to be as flexible as the market is dynamic and to efficiently distribute any number of products and services in the future. As we continue to build our retail network, one significant strategy is to continue adding new products and services."

"Today’s deal further validates netECHO™ as the leading voice Internet solution, and demonstrates the growing demand for voice Internet capabilities among companies in the burgeoning Internet services industry," said Dr. Emdad Khan, founder, president and CEO of InternetSpeech. "InternetSpeech is looking forward to working with Q Comm, and providing its customers with a value-add service that can instantly connect them to the Internet with any mobile or land line telephone."

InternetSpeech, the leader in Voice Internet, develops and markets netECHO™, the only software available that provides businesses and consumers complete anytime, anywhere voice-based telephone access to the Internet. The company's patent-pending technology can be bundled with other products, such as traditional computer-based Internet access or voice mail, and can be customized to meet individual business needs, such as employee access to Intranet sites. InternetSpeech also offers business software that automates the process of voice-enabling a company's Web site and applications in any language, furthering the development of a globally connected voice Internet. InternetSpeech, a privately held company headquartered in San Jose, Calif., launched netECHO™ in November 2000. For more information about InternetSpeech, visit, or call 1-877-312-4638.
