AT&T CUTS PRICES ON NEW YORK INTRASTATE SERVICES BY NEARLY $21 MILLION

AT&T CUTS PRICES ON NEW YORK INTRASTATE SERVICES BY NEARLY $21 MILLION
 NEW YORK, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T (NYSE: 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 $20.9 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 local exchange companies for connections to their local networks.
 "We are passing along to our customers the full effect of the reduction in access charges we pay," said Michael J. Morrissey, AT&T government affairs vice president.
 Approximately $17.3 million of the reductions will benefit residence customers, while the remaining $3.6 million will affect business customers. The AT&T price cuts will result in a reduction of about 28 cents in the average monthly residential bill.
 The price decreases apply to all in-state, long-distance calls 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, as well as for AT&T EasyReach (SM) 700 Service calls during the evening and weekend/night calling periods.
 Price reductions also are planned 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) WATS, AT&T PRO (SM) New York Service and AT&T ALL PRO (SM) Service.
