MCI ANNOUNCES 1-800-COLLECT CALLS FOR ONLY 10 CENTS PER MINUTE; SAVINGS OF UP TO 82 PERCENT VS. AT&T LONG DISTANCE COLLECT CALLS

 WASHINGTON, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- This July 4th, Americans can call each other collect for only 10 cents per-minute with 1-800-COLLECT, America's least expensive way to call someone collect. Whether calling from the beach, from the airport or hotel, or from camp, 1-800-COLLECT callers can call from anywhere, to anywhere in the United States or Puerto Rico, and receive the same low rate of 10 cents per-minute, no matter how long they talk.
 To use the new service, callers simply dial 1-800-COLLECT (1-800-265-5328) instead of "0" to reach an operator who will connect the call. 1-800-COLLECT may be used from any phone, touch-tone or rotary, anywhere in the United States and Puerto Rico. Anyone can use 1-800-COLLECT, no matter which long distance company they subscribe to.
 "Since we introduced 1-800-COLLECT, consumers have realized that this new service is the most convenient and affordable way to call collect -- and with this July 4th offer, there's no better time to call 1-800-COLLECT," said Jerry Taylor, president of MCI Consumer Markets.
 To highlight consumers savings with MCI's special holiday rates: a five-minute call during the evening on Sunday, July 4th from Atlanta to San Francisco, would cost 50 cents with 1-800-COLLECT. Listed below are what consumers will spend using collect and other calling services on July 4th, and what they'll save by using 1-800-COLLECT:
 -- $2.79 with AT&T collect service, or a savings of 82 percent;
 -- $1.65 with the AT&T Card, or a savings of 69 percent;
 -- 75 cents with AT&T Basic Dial "1" service, or a savings of
 33 percent.
