 AT&T SIGNS CONTRACT WITH EMPROSA NACIONAL DE TELECOMUNICATIONES
 ACAPULCO, Mexico, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Emprosa Nacional de Telecomunicaciones S.A. (ENTEL Chile), the country's largest long- distance company, today announced it had signed a contract with AT&T (NYSE: T) for the second phase of a fiber optic network that will link major cities throughout the country.
 The contract calls for AT&T to supply and install an additional $4.4 million of single mode fiber optic cable, services and related 565 megabit transmission terminal to ENTEL. Each of these terminals can handle the equivalent of 7,500 calls simultaneously over each fiber.
 In phase 2 of this project, AT&T will provide a fiber optic digital network connection between the cities of Talca and Chillan (about 170 kilometers). AT&T has teamed with two Chilean companies, Sistemas Digitales S.A. and Construtel de Chile S.A., to support ENTEL with this project and is expected to be in service by Aug. 31.
 AT&T is currently supplying and installing $6.8 million worth of equipment and services for phase one of ENTEL's fiber optic network, which provides a 295 kilometer link between Santiago and Talca.
 "We've had tremendous success working with ENTEL, and are pleased that they want to continue our business relationship," said Chris Zitny, AT&T sales managing director-Chile. "We want to continue to help ENTEL build a quality, state-of-the-art network for Chile."
 ENTEL's national telecommunications modernization plan will be implemented in five phases, with final completion scheduled for the mid- 1990s.
 The fiber cable will be manufactured at AT&T Network Systems facility in Atlanta, Ga., while the transmission equipment will be manufactured by AT&T Network Systems Nederland, the Dutch wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T Network Systems International.
