    what do you wstl investors think?

    Have you taken a look at Netopia lately? We've got a lot going on.
    Positioning Netopia as the service assurance solution for the next wave
    of broadband deployments for IPTV, VoIP and other services, we've
    introduced new high-performance broadband gateways and remote
    software providing five-nines of carrier-class reliability for the
    rollout of triple-play services.

    Last week at GlobalComm, we introduced an innovative new product for
    carriers to convert dial-up customers to DSL, Netopia's self-installing
    ADSL2+ Pocket Modem. This is a simple, low cost solution to help
    carriers assure the successful migration of the more than 19 million
    residential dial-up customers to higher speed, higher value broadband
    services with a minimum of cost and complexity.

    We recently reported two high-volume CPE wins in Europe; one for IPTV,
    the other is a new DSL Wi-Fi customer; and the completion of three
    licenses for our gateway remote management OSS software, including a
    deployment at BellSouth. For our second quarter ended in March,
    revenues topped $27 million and we returned to profitability. With our
    share price trading above $4 since late March 2006, Netopia shares may
    qualify for Nasdaq listing by late July.

    We've also increased the strength of our management team as Netopia
    competes for opportunities in the broadband market. In January, Ray
    Smets, a 15 year veteran at BellSouth and most recently President of
    Sniffer Technologies at Network Associates, became our Senior Vice
    President, Sales and Marketing. In May, Dr. Geng Lin, Director of
    Engineering for Cisco's Network Management Technology Group, joined us
    as Vice President, Application and Server Software Engineering. And in
    June, Christopher Thompson, a 15 year telecom product marketing and
    marketing strategy veteran became our Vice President of Marketing.

    It's a good time to take a fresh look at Netopia. Please let me know
    I can provide you with any additional information, if you would be
    interested in meeting with us when you are in the San Francisco Bay
    or if you would like us to schedule a time with you when we are next in
    your vicinity. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

    I hope you take another look at Netopia. If you would like to be
    removed from Netopia's Investor Relations Distribution List please
    respond to this e-mail and we will update our records.
