    SAN JOSE, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual PBX(TM), inventor and
 leading supplier of hosted PBX services, today announced a broad reduction
 in "per-minute" prices across its product line. These reductions offer
 customers as much as a 60 percent drop in costs compared to previous price
 levels. Virtual PBX attributes the new prices to lower operating costs
 resulting from strong growth. The company has grown at 50 percent or more
 each year for five consecutive years. The new pricing is available
 immediately to both new and existing clients.
     "We're delighted to be able to provide this price reduction to our
 customers," said Greg Brashier, vice-president of Marketing and Sales at
 Virtual PBX. "Our customers are the reason for the outstanding growth we
 have seen, which has led to reduced costs. Now we can complete the circle
 and give something back to the very people that have made us successful."
     Virtual PBX customers get the benefits of a full-featured phone system
 without having to buy, install, or maintain traditional on-site phone
 equipment, eliminating the expense and complexity of setting up a business
 phone system. In addition, calls can be routed to employees working in any
 location and can follow them from phone to phone as needed, allowing them
 to work from home or branch offices and enabling "virtual" offices.
 Customers can use their existing phone numbers, whether toll free or local
 numbers, or have new numbers assigned by Virtual PBX. Costs for the service
 include a "per-minute" fee that is charged to cover the cost of routing
 calls over standard phone lines, with higher quality than internet-based
 calls. This per-minute fee is the subject of the announced price reduction.
     Per-minute rates for calls to toll free numbers were previously between
 6.9 and 7.5 cents per minute. Now, rates have been reduced to as little as
 3 cents per minute, a savings of up to 60 percent. Local number pricing has
 also been reduced, and price reductions are available for all three Virtual
 PBX Service offerings, as well as the company's PBX Parachute(R) disaster
 recovery service. Further information about the price reductions can be
 found at the company's website,
