MCI INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES MCI MAIL GLOBAL ACCESS FROM 27 COUNTRIES

MCI INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES MCI MAIL GLOBAL ACCESS FROM 27 COUNTRIES
 RYE BROOK, N.Y., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI International, a subsidiary of MCI Communications Corp. (MCI), today began providing direct access from an initial 27 countries to one of the world's most popular electronic mail services, MCI Mail, through an in-country telephone call. Additional countries will be added throughout 1992. MCI Mail Global Access(SM) service provides a simple, high quality, low-cost alternative to a packet service subscription. MCI Mail Global Access also provides portability not previously available. In order to reach MCI Mail, traveling users simply dial a country-specific phone number from their computer terminal in any of the 27 countries.
 Until now, subscribers accessing MCI Mail from outside the United States had to arrange for a separate subscription to each country's packet switch service and pay the provider of that service for both the amount of time spent online and the number of characters sent and received. MCI Mail Global Access simplifies the process. Some advantages of MCI Mail's new service are:
 -- Easy to use -- the same logon procedure will work in virtually all of the 27 countries.
 -- Available today -- a separate subscription is not needed, which is especially important to travelling subscribers such as journalists.
 -- Cost savings -- the price of this service is (U.S.) $0.50 per minute, billed in half-minute increments after a one-minute minimum.
 -- Simplified billing -- access charges are billed on a per-minute basis instead of time and volume.
 -- Consolidated invoice -- charges for access will appear on the MCI Mail invoice along with message charges.
 "Our customers need to be able to access MCI Mail overseas as easily as they do in the United States," said Jerry DeMartino, vice president of sales and marketing for MCI International. "MCI Mail Global Access represents our continuing commitment to our international users. They are an important and fast-growing segment of our customer base and we are happy to provide them with high quality, simplified international access at a competitive price. This represents just one of several value-added features we will be adding to MCI Mail this year to address the needs of today's transnational businesses and world travelers."
