Juno and Splitrock Sign Agreement to Expand Access to Web; Juno Will Add Hundreds of New Access Numbers for Its Members NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 12, 1999--Juno Online Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JWEB) announced today that it has signed a three-year agreement with Splitrock Services, Inc., a leading network provider, to make additional local Internet access numbers available for connection to its online services. This agreement will benefit Juno users in multiple ways. First, more users will be able to get online for the cost of a local phone call. The addition of Splitrock's network will provide access numbers in many new cities across the United States. The increase in Internet access numbers will also help ensure that Juno's users continue to have fast connection times.

"By expanding our network of local access numbers, our goal is to ensure that our members have the quick and affordable access to the Internet they expect from Juno."

"Our access platform expands their reach today and has the capacity to grow with their customer base in the future. We look forward to delivering first-rate service to Juno's customers."
