AT&T PROPOSES $110 MILLION REDUCTION IN CALIFORNIA LONG DISTANCE PRICES

 AT&T PROPOSES $110 MILLION REDUCTION IN CALIFORNIA
 LONG DISTANCE PRICES
 SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T will reduce long distance prices in California by $110 million on Jan. 1, 1992.
 It is AT&T's fourth in-state reduction this year: prices have already decreased by $135.3 million since the beginning of the year.
 In a filing with the California Public Utilities Commission today, AT&T proposed to reduce prices for in-state direct-dial, operator assisted and card calls in all rate periods.
 In addition, the company said it will reduce prices for its REACH OUT (R) California calling plans, AT&T READYLINE (R), WATS, 800 and SDN service offerings.
 Dick Bromley, AT&T government affairs vice president, said that about $80 million of the new reductions are related to reductions in local telephone company access rates.
 If the price changes go into effect as filed, Bromley said, the price of a 10-minute daytime direct dial call from San Francisco to Los Angeles would drop from $1.70 to $1.42. That same call cost $1.86 at the end of last year.
 "These new lower prices are one of the advantages of using AT&T long distance services in California," Bromley said.
