AGM Trading Update

Vyke Communications PLC
20 July 2007

                            Vyke Communications plc
                           ('Vyke' or 'the Company')

       Trading update for second quarter shows continued growth momentum

Vyke is pleased to announce that it has continued its strong growth through the 
second quarter of July 2007, continuing the momentum gained during the first 
quarter of 2007.

For the reported period, the total number of paid customer accounts of the Vyke 
suite of IP-based products increased by 30% over Q1 2007, with the total number 
of calls placed via the Vyke product suite growing by 11% over the same period.

Sales of the Vyke product suite represented 59% of the Company's total retail 
billing during Q2, compared to 56% in Q1 2007.

Tommy Jensen, Executive Chairman of Vyke, commented:
'We are very encouraged by our most recent results. The key performance
indicators show that both the number of Vyke product suite accounts as well as
the total retail billing are growing in lock-step, proving that Vyke is able to
increase its number of accounts without suffering any penalties with regards to
average revenue per account. The relative decrease in the number of total calls
placed in relation to the total retail billing is pleasing in that it shows that
Vyke's quality of service is continuing to increase in response to our capital
investment in the network.

The second half of the year has begun positively and as at the 15 July a further
net 339,112 customer accounts have been added. 4,274,000 calls have been made so
far this month with a total retail dollar value of $2,472,000. The figure for
current paid, Vyke product suite, customer accounts stands at 855,567.'
