BOSTON TECHNOLOGY AND HONG KONG'S HUTCHISON TELEPHONE SIGN CONTRACT

 WAKEFIELD, Mass., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSTN) today announced that it has signed a contract with Hutchison Telephone Company Ltd. of Hong Kong. Hutchison Telephone will use Boston Technology's CO ACCESS(TM) systems to provide enhanced services, such as voice messaging, to its cellular customers in Hong Kong.
 Boston Technology shipped an initial CO ACCESS system, valued at approximately $1 million, to Hutchison Telephone in the Spring of 1993. The system is being used to provide voice messaging services internally to Hutchison Telephone employees until early 1994 when the cellular provider plans to launch its voice messaging service publicly.
 Mark Cheley, manager of special projects for Hutchison Telephone, stated, "We selected Boston Technology because of the expandability and flexibility of its CO ACCESS systems and because of the company's experience in the enhanced services market with the Regional Bell Operating Companies in the United States and other telephone companies and cellular service providers in Asia. We are expecting a good response to this new voice messaging service and will require equipment that can easily be expanded to accommodate rapid growth."
 Paul DeLacey, general manager of Boston Technology International, added, "Hutchison Telephone plans an aggressive service launch in 1994 and we are looking forward to working closely with them as they deploy enhanced services in Hong Kong."
 Hutchison Telephone is the largest cellular network operator in Hong Kong and has been providing cellular services to its subscribers for the past eight years.
 Based in Wakefield, Mass., Boston Technology develops, manufactures, markets and supports systems that provide enhanced voice and information processing services for telephone companies, wireless telephone service providers, interexchange carriers, other service providers, and large organizations worldwide.
