Telarus Launches VARSearch(tm) to Aide Users Looking for Network Equipment and Telephone System Installers

DRAPER, UTAH - June 22, 2006 - Telarus, Inc., parent company of ShopforT1.com - provider of real-time T1 quotes, today announced the release of version 1.0 of VARSearch(tm), a real-time search for network equipment and telephone system installers and dealers in every local market across the United States. The VARSearch(tm) technology is available for public use at www.VARNetwork.com.

"Value Added Resellers (VARs) and network integrators are in high demand by our T1 and DS3 clients" commented Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus, Inc. "Creating a way for our customers to connect with these VARs was the next logical step in our progression as a company. We strive to build networks of experts who all mutually benefit from their relationship with Telarus."

As of today's release, VARSearch(tm) boasts 863 registered VARs, with 275 who are actively working with new telecom and network equipment clients. That number is expect to increase dramatically as the program gains traction and more VARs find out about the free lead referral service.

According to Patrick Oborn, Chief Innovations Officer of Telarus, VARNetwork.com will become the next 'killer app' in the world of online communications shopping.

"VARNetork.com has been in the works ever since one of our dedicated business customers asked us who we recommend to install a new T1 card in their telecom closet. The fact was, we didn't know. In tomorrow's telecommunications market, you'll not only have to know who the best high-speed internet and voice providers are, but also who is best suited to assist with the installation, program the new PBX, set up the clients' VoIP handsets, etc. With VARSearth(tm), Telarus/ShopforT1.com now have all of these bases covered."

Oborn continued, "The next version of our VARSearch(tm) software will include customer reviews of VARs, better selection and matching algorithms, and a host of other suggestions we've received from our users."

VARNetwork.com is a free advertising resource for VARs who want to get their name in front of potential buyers and ShopforT1 agents alike. The VARs only pay an advertising fee when they meet with success in the program, and find a new customer.

"By taking the risk away from the VARs, who are admittedly not marketing specialists, we help them keep their fixed costs to a minimum while still delivering potential new customers on which they rely for growth. Other programs charge up-front fees to join, in addition to other costs. We will undoubtedly be the low cost leader in this space" continued Edwards, when asked how VARNetwork.com is different from other VAR referral services. "We look forward to delivering a great deal of free leads to our VAR partners" concluded Edwards.
