					Novus Entertainment to offer Vonage Internet Phone Service
Novus now offers customers a one-stop-shop for their high-speed Internet, cable television
and telephone services
Mississauga, ON, November 1, 2005 – Vonage Canada, a leading provider of Internet phone service in Canada,
today announced an agreement with Novus Entertainment that will see Novus offer Vonage Internet phone service in
Vancouver. Novus Entertainment provides cable TV and high-speed Internet access to residential buildings in
Vancouver’s downtown core.

“Vonage Canada is excited to work with Novus Entertainment,” said Gary McLean, Director Channel Sales, Vonage
Canada. “Through this relationship Novus will be able to enhance its current communications service offering and
provide customers with the convenience and benefits of flat-rate, full-featured Internet phone service.”

Vonage Internet phone service is available immediately through Novus Entertainment. Consumers will be able to
purchase the Vonage Internet phone service as part of a bundled offer with NovusTV and Novus Internet products.
Customers who purchase Vonage Internet phone service and Novus Internet products will receive a discount on their
Internet service. When a customer signs up for the services the discount is applied to the customer’s Novus account
and the discount is deducted once the customer has been a Novus customer for 60 days.

“At Novus we strive to meet the growing needs of our customers,” said Donna Robertson, Co-President and Chief
Legal Officer of Novus Entertainment. “With the addition of Vonage Internet phone service Novus currently is the only
communications service provider in Vancouver to offer Cable TV, high-speed Internet and phone service,” Doug
Holman, Co-President and Chief Financial Officer added. “Demand for Internet phone service in Vancouver is strong.
By including Vonage Internet phone service in our product line, our customers have direct access to a flexible,
feature-rich, portable phone service while at the same time saving money on their Novus high-speed Internet service.”

How Internet Phone Service Works:
To get started making phone calls over the Internet, all that’s needed is a Vonage phone adapter, which plugs into
almost any high speed Internet connection and works with any touch-tone telephone. Within a short period of time of
connecting the Vonage adapter, customers can start making and receiving calls. With voice quality and reliability that
is comparable to traditional phone service, the only real difference will be in the great savings every month.

budget, including these popular packages:**
