SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 22, 2013

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT) today launched its award-winning suite of cloud-based
business communications services across Canada. The launch is the first in a
series of expansions outside of the U.S. where 8x8 has been ranked as a market
leader in cloud-based IP telephony and unified communications (UC) by industry
research firms including Gartner, Frost & Sullivan and Infonetics.

Available immediately in most Canadian provinces, the 8x8 Virtual Office cloud
communications suite provides small and medium businesses (SMBs) with services
such as hosted VoIP, contact center, UC and videoconferencing. Customers can
select local phone numbers in each province as well as virtual numbers from
Canada, the United States and around the world, both of which save inbound
callers the expense of long-distance charges. Companies with locations in
Canada and the United States can now have a single, virtual PBX enabling
extension dialing with high definition audio between international locations,
all with no per minute charges. 8x8’s Virtual Office also gives SMBs the
option, at no additional cost, of extending those services to smartphones and
tablets, enabling their employees to stay productive and responsive on the
road and at home.

All 8x8 services comply with applicable Canadian laws, including the ability
to locate 911 callers, which many SMBs consider a key requirement before
they’ll consider VoIP. 8x8 also meets Canadian tax laws, giving customers the
peace of mind that their mission-critical communications services won’t be
lost due to noncompliance. 8x8’s services will be delivered from its network
of data centers in the US and Saskatchewan, Canada.

“8x8’s cloud communications services are designed to provide the reliability,
flexibility and scalability that Canadian companies need,” said 8x8 Chairman
and CEO Bryan Martin. “More than 30,000 U.S. businesses use 8x8, and this
expansion is a major first step toward providing SMBs worldwide with a
cost-effective, enterprise-grade way to empower their communications.”
