AT&T CUTS PRICES ON NEW YORK INSTRASTATE SERVICE BY NEARLY $4 MILLION

 NEW YORK, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T today announced that it will reduce prices on most intrastate long-distance services -- for calls made from one point to another within New York State -- by $3.9 million.
 The decreases, effective Oct. 1, were approved by the New York State Public Service Commission today. The lower prices reflect the commission's previous decision to reduce access charges which long- distance companies pay to local exchange companies for connections to their local networks.
 "Customers will reap the benefits of the lower access charges we will pay," said Marc Rosen, AT&T Government Affairs vice president.
 Approximately $3.2 million of the reductions will benefit residence and small business customers, while the remaining $0.7 million will affect business customers. The AT&T price cuts will result in a reduction of about five cents in the average monthly residential bill.
 The price decreases apply to in-state, long-distance calls either dialed directly or placed with operator assistance (including collect, credit-card and third-party-billed calls). In addition, prices will drop for the AT&T REACH OUT(R) New York and Cross State optional calling plans.
 Price reductions also will take place for a variety of in-state business services, including the AT&T 800 READYLINE(R) family of services, AT&T Software Defined Network Service, AT&T MEGACOM(R)800, and AT&T CUSTOMNET(SM).
