LAS VEGAS -- 8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT) , provider of Packet8 (www.packet8.net) broadband Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and videophone communication services, today announced it has signed an agreement with LSSi Corp., the world's leading provider of telephony-sourced databases of telephone listings, to offer nationwide directory listing service to Packet8 business VoIP phone service subscribers.

Effective immediately, all Packet8 business subscribers will receive a free listing in LSSi's national 411 Directory Assistance database. The LSSi Database includes 135 million residential and business listings from the United States and Puerto Rico. This "telco-fresh" database owes its extraordinary freshness and accuracy to the fact that more than 99 percent of its listings consist of service-order-level data provided daily to LSSi by the listing owners themselves, such as local phone companies and VoIP service providers. Year after year, the LSSi Database has been acknowledged as the most accurate telephony-based database in the United States by respected industry analyst, The Paisley Group.

"For a business, it is vital to have a listing in the Directory Assistance database, though many VoIP phone service providers do not offer this feature to their subscribers," said 8x8 Vice President of Marketing and Sales Huw Rees. "We are pleased to be working with LSSi Corp. to make this service available to all U.S. businesses now using the Packet8 Virtual Office VoIP phone solution."
