    HONG KONG, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- WHEREVER.net (Nasdaq:   WNET), the
 leading Asian provider of Internet Protocol (IP) telephony solutions,
 announced today its acceptance into the Platinum Partner Program of Dialogic,
 an Intel Company.  As a Platinum Partner, WHEREVER.net will continue to work
 closely with Intel to carry out Intel's vision and strategic business
 objectives, while using the benefits of Platinum Partner status to achieve its
 goals of providing high quality IP network services globally.
     Entry into the Platinum Partner Program is by invitation only.  All
 companies invited to join must meet strict membership and revenue
 requirements, including the potential to grow approximately 50% in revenue.
 To date, only a few companies in Asia have been accepted into the program.
     Johnny Lee, Founder and CEO of WHEREVER.net stated, "We are very pleased
 that Intel has invited us to join this prestigious Platinum Partner Program.
 Intel is a global leader in the manufacturing of computer, networking and
 communication products, and we consider it an honor to be invited to join
 their program.  We believe that our Platinum Partner status will give us a
 significant edge worldwide in marketing our services, and are looking forward
 to continuing to work with Intel to expand IP based telephony and integrated
 communications in Asia."
     "The Platinum Partner Program is designed and optimized to put companies
 like WHEREVER.net at the forefront of CT (computer telephony) market segments
 such as IP telephony or public networks," said Robert Heymann, Director of
 Intel's Communications Product Group in Asia-Pacific.  "The program offers
 companies opportunities to incrementally increase the visibility of their
 products, particularly those developed on hot technologies like CT Connect(TM)
 and CT Media(TM).  We are very pleased to have WHEREVER.net, a long-standing
 business associate of ours, join our Platinum Partner Program."
     In March of 2000, WHEREVER.net became the first Asian company to receive
 investment from the Intel Communications Fund.  Since that period,
 WHEREVER.net has expanded to seven branch offices in key locations around the
 world.  WHEREVER.net continues to retain ownership of its privately managed
 global network and is working towards their goal of a PoP presence of 300 by
 the end of 2001.  WHEREVER.net is expected to launch its new Global IP VPN
 service shortly, which will exclusively feature platforms using Intel's voice
 over IP technology.
