New Hilarity, Inc. Changes Name to Orbit E-Commerce, Inc.

Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Orbit Canada Inc.

    TORONTO, April 18, 2001 /PRNewswire/ -
  New Hilarity, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   NHLY) announced today that it has
 changed its name to Orbit E-Commerce, Inc. The Company's OTCBB symbol changes
 from "NHLY" to "OECI".
     The change of name was approved by shareholders at the special meeting of
 shareholders held on 12 April 2001.
     Orbit E-Commerce through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Orbit Canada, has
 built the world's first pure Voice-over-The-Internet (VoIP) phone-to-phone
 national telecommunications network. In the last quarter of 2000 Orbit Canada
 completed building the first stage of its network by linking Canada's eight
 largest cities to its VoIP-based telecommunications system. By June of 2001,
 the Company will have added another five cities to its network and by that
 time will be in a position to offer its services to 85% of Canada's
 population.
     The Company's first product offering to Canadians is a residential long-
 distance service which allows Canadians to call anywhere in Canada and
 continental United States for only $19.95 (Cdn.) per month. Orbit's
 subscribers can obtain a second Orbit line for only $10.00 (Cdn.) per month.
     When Orbit's management began building the Company's VoIP-based network
 in the beginning of 2000 they made two decisions in regard to network
 capability and network design that have put the Company in the lead among VoIP-
 network builders/operators world-wide.
     The first decision was to build a "pure" VoIP network, a "pure" Internet
 Telephony system with no reliance on or connections to switched-minute or
 legacy technology systems. This critical characteristic of Orbit's network
 ensures that users can enjoy call quality as good or better than call quality
 on traditional switched-minute telecommunications systems.
     The second decision was to build and design Orbit's system in a user-
 friendly phone-to-phone format instead of a computer-to-computer or dial-pad
 format. This allows the Company to compete head-on with traditional carriers
 for the largest segments of the telecommunications market -- residential long-
 distance and non-PC long distance business calling, thereby bringing the
 promise of Internet Telephony to millions of users.
     In January 2001, Orbit was contracted by a group of Australian telecom
 executives to build - based on its Canadian network design - a continent-wide
 VoIP network in Australia. The Company will earn equity in the Australian
 venture as well as consulting fees.
