(Nasdaq: EGHT), provider of Packet8 (http://www.packet8.net) broadband Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and videophone communication services, today announced the availability of International Virtual Direct Inbound Dial (DID) numbers with area codes from nine European countries.

With these International Virtual Numbers, Packet8 residential and business subscribers can create a "virtual presence" for themselves in the following locations -- U.K., France, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Ireland, and Denmark.

"We are pleased to offer this valuable additional service to our subscribers," said 8x8 Vice President of Sales and Marketing Huw Rees. "Features like International Virtual Numbers further differentiate Packet8 VoIP phone service from traditional plain old telephone service by providing cost savings and increased flexibility."
