AT&T CUTS DISCOUNT-PLAN PRICES

 JACKSON, Miss., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Lower long-distance prices resulting from AT&T's largest price cut for calls within Mississippi take effect today.
 As part of that overall price reduction AT&T today said its Reach Out(R) Mississippi discount-calling plan prices will be cut by 10 percent.
 Reach Out Mississippi 24-hour plan subscribers now will receive their first hour of in-state, direct-dialed night/weekend calls each month for $8.20 instead of $9.25. Additional minutes now are billed at 13 cents a minute instead of 15 cents a minute. Subscribers also receive a 5-percent discount on all weekday calls between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and an added 15-percent discount on all evening calls made between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. Sunday through Friday.
 AT&T said its price cuts are a result of a Mississippi Public Service Commission decision, effective Jan. 15, allowing more competition among long-distance companies. Customers now may use new carriers by dialing the chosen company's five-digit access code -- such as AT&T's one-zero-ATT -- before dialing a call. For customers who make long-distance calls, AT&T offers a variety of calling plans. Residential customers can learn more about these plans by dialing 800-222-0300.
 Effective today, AT&T's standard rates have been reduced 21 percent. An AT&T 10-minute direct-dialed weekend call, for instance, from Jackson to Biloxi will cost $1.50 instead of $1.90, offering more than 21 percent savings.
