mPhase Technologies Inc. ("mPhase" or the "Company") (OTCQB: XDSL) - ( http://mphasetech.com/), today announced that shareholders who had experienced difficulty or additional costs when depositing the Company's shares manually will now be able to have their shares deposited electronically in street name.

We are pleased with the collaborative efforts by our lead outside securities counsel, Joseph M. Lucosky and Scott E. Linsky of Lucosky Brookman LLP, as well as counsel for DTC and DTC itself, in working to remove the chill, enabling our shareholders to once again deposit shares in street name."
