Interlink Global Corp. Announces Expansion Plan for Latin American Network.

Plan Adds Significant Telephone and Data Traffic to Interlink's International Infrastructure

MIAMI -- Interlink Global Corp. (OTC:ILKG) today announced the operational and expansion plans for 2007 of its Latin American Network which includes NGTV (New Global Telecom Venezuela), one of the largest fully licensed telecom network companies operating in Venezuela, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of ILKG. The entire network which includes holdings in several countries in Latin America and which will include up to five in total by year's end will, when fully expanded, insure Interlink its place in the forefront of major telephone service providers in South America. Interlink is in position to become one of the largest VoIP telecom and data services providers in the region.

According to Mr. Severino Rivano, Vice President of Interlink Global, and President of NGTV, "We are currently converting the entire network from TDM to IP. This will definitely increase the efficiency and capacity of the network as more and more services become available. We have the equipment in place to do this, and we expect that this conversion will be nearing completion by the end of the first quarter of 2007."

The substantial amounts of telephone and data traffic currently being generated by ILKG's other Latin American subsidiaries in Ecuador, Colombia, and also in Venezuela, will be routed through NGTV's existing infrastructure while using Interlink's US infrastructure as a back-up to maximize efficiency and to enhance profitability. The network conversion, already begun, will expand the system capacity even further, as Interlink will then be able to leverage its existing purchasing power and its extensive contacts in the region to further reduce prices while maintaining margins, resulting in lower telecom and data transmission charges to its customers.

NGTV presently has over 500 corporate clients in Venezuela for the different products and services it offers and many national and international carriers established in Venezuela currently use NGTV's transmission services for its high reliability and competitive prices. According to Mr. Rivano, "We are currently generating over $750,000 a month of revenues and anticipate increasing our revenues to over $1,000,000 per month in 2007 as the network expands."

Anastasios Kyriakides, Chairman of ILKG in describing the operating status of NGTV stated: "We are about to reach our first anniversary as the owners of NGTV. When we acquired the company it was laden with debt and had systems in disrepair and badly in need of upgraded equipment. In the first year, we reduced debt by $2,500,000, increased capacity by over 50% and upgraded the system to handle the most sophisticated telecom and data services available. We are in the final stages of our upgrade plan that we implemented when we acquired the company. In 2007, we will reap the rewards of these substantial efforts as we become one of the largest providers in the region. The proposed nationalization of CANTV, the largest telecom provider in Venezuela, which is owned by Verizon, will not adversely affect our operations, but could actually work to our benefit. We believe that many corporations may switch to our network if the government does actually attempt to run the largest telecom network in Venezuela, because of the perceived inability of government owned entities to provide the latest in products and services. However, if we were to be ever considered for nationalization, the return to our shareholders would be significant since NGTV today is worth many times the cost we paid for the company approximately a year ago."
