AT&T RESPONSE STATEMENT TO BRITISH TELECOM-MCI ANNOUNCEMENT

 NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Joseph P. Nacchio, president of AT&T's Business Communications Services unit, today issued the following response statement to today's announcement by British Telecom and MCI:
 "The BT/MCI announcement comes as no real surprise. It's no secret that BT has been trying to expand its position in the U.S. market, while using its market power in the U.K. to prevent similar competition there.
 "There can now be no question about the hotly competitive nature of the U.S. and global communications services markets. Even the most ardent regulator has to recognize that AT&T deserves the same freedom as this giant BT/MCI alliance enjoys.
 "It appears that the BT/MCI strategy differs from AT&T's. We prefer to serve the needs of global customers through partnerships with like- minded telecommunications companies. Just last week, we introduced WorldSource communications services, which set the standard for meeting the the worldwide voice and data needs of global companies."
