Press Release dated July 11, 2003
BESTNET COMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCES RECORD FISCAL
3RD QUARTER 2003 RESULTS.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.--(PR Newswire)-- July 11, 2003--BestNet Communications
Corporation (OTCBB: BESC - News), a provider of proprietary global communication
solutions, today announces its results for the third quarter of fiscal 2003.

As stated in a previous press release, revenues for the quarter totaled over
$387,000 USD setting a new record and up 31% over the same period of fiscal
2002. Gross margins more than doubled based on the same period comparison and
are continuing to improve. EBITDA, which represents virtually all of the cash
used in current operations on a monthly basis is down over 62% based on fiscal
2003 and 2002 third quarter comparison.

Robert A. Blanchard, President and CEO of BestNet Communications Corporation
commented, "The third quarter of 2003 was one of continuous improvement and
growth for us. I am particularly pleased with our continuing record setting
revenue growth and strategic deployment of cash resources. The fact that revenue
is up 31% while cash used is down over 60% in comparable periods indicates we
are making good choices with our marketing and sales initiates. This is further
reinforced by the increase we have seen in both corporate and active accounts
this fiscal year to date. Thus far we have added over 350 new corporate accounts
along with 4,000 new individual accounts. I encourage our investors to listen to
our audio update which can be found at http://www.bestnetcom.com/investor.htm
and review our 3rd quarter 10 Q which will be filed next week for more detailed
information on the progress we are making."

BestNet also announces today that it will hold a meeting of its shareholders on
Wednesday September 17th, 2003 at a location and time to be announced to provide
a comprehensive update and conduct business important to all shareholders.
Details on the meeting will follow.
