LCI ANNOUNCES INTERNATIONAL 800 SERVICE

 LCI ANNOUNCES INTERNATIONAL 800 SERVICE
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- LCI International today


announced that it now offers the capability for its customers to place Switched International 800 calls outside of the United States and Canada. This international 800 service will allow origination from 37 countries to LCI customer's established switched lines in the United States.
 Customers may accept International Direct Distance Dialing (IDDD) 800 service on the same 800 line as their domestic service, or differentiate IDDD from domestic traffic through the use of a separate 800 line.
 "This international 800 service is the most economical service in the industry," said Thomas J. Wynne, LCI's president. "The savings is between five and 12 percent when comparing it to similar switched IDDD 800 pricing available from our competitors."
 As a special introductory offer, LCI will waive the service set-up fee of $50 per activated country. No other additional fees or minimum usage charges will be applied. LCI offers volume discounts for larger users, and allows IDDD 800 traffic to contribute toward volume discounts applied to other core LCI products.
 "This is a great service available to our existing and future customers who conduct business in many international arenas," Wynne explained. "With the tremendous growth we have experienced in the past year it is critical that we have such services available to our customers who do business in the global marketplace."
