Unit shipments of the patented Wireless Phone Jack design spike past 2005 volumes due to increased sales for satellite applications

August 22, 2006 - Salt Lake City,UT - PhonexTM (www.phonex.com), a leading volume provider of voice and data communications over powerline, announced that unit sales during first half of 2006 for the patented Wireless Phone Jack design have increased 134% over the same period last year. The primary driver was sales for use with the installation of satellite set top boxes.


"We enjoyed a dramatic spike in the number of Wireless Phone Jack and EasyJack design products being sold for use in satellite applications," said John Knab, CEO Phonex. He continued, "Combined with achieving the milestone of 12 million devices sold in May of this year, we continue to establish our position as the highest volume and lowest cost supplier of Wireless Phone Jack products to the market."

Phonex is currently shipping fourth -generation Phone Jack designs using established, reliable powerline technology.

The base simply plugs into an outlet near existing phone service; the extension can be installed into another outlet in the home to create a new phone extension.
