"Proof Positive from MCI will do for American business what Friends & Family did for residential long distance," Price said. "And just as with Friends & Family, MCI is the long distance carrier with the technological flexibility and willingness to provide this service to their customers." The Proof Positive Business Service Center will be located at the Gateway Business Center in Pinellas Park. "The decision by MCI to create 800 technology industry jobs in Tampa is wonderful news for the Tampa Bay area," said Charles E. Rainey, Pinellas County Commission chairman. "The new center will bring more than $20 million in new payroll for the Tampa Bay area."
