AT&T ISSUES REACTION TO FCC DISCUSSION OF REGULATORY REFORM PROPOSALS

AT&T ISSUES REACTION TO FCC DISCUSSION OF REGULATORY REFORM PROPOSALS
 WASHINGTON, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Vic Pelson, president of AT&T's Communications Services Division, today commented as follows on an FCC meeting in Washington that focused on regulatory reforms impacting the company's long distance business:
 We are greatly encouraged by views expressed in today's FCC meeting indicating that additional regulatory reforms might be forthcoming next year that would further enhance AT&T's freedom to compete in the long distance marketplace. We have said for some time that customers will gain the most from full and fair competition. AT&T wants to be able to anticipate and meet customers' needs aggressively without being handicapped by outdated and unnecessary regulatory barriers that distort the marketplace and often frustrate customers.
 We will cooperate fully in the FCC's review of price cap regulation. The policy in effect since 1989 has clearly been good for long distance telecommunications customers. It has promoted price stability and helped stimulate introduction of a wide range of new and innovative services. We are confident the FCC will find that the policy has been a useful transition vehicle toward less regulatory interference in a hotly competitive long distance marketplace.
