MCI INTRODUCES NEW CUSTOM CALLING CARD IN SIX LANGUAGES; MCI IS FIRST TO OFFER DIALING INSTRUCTIONS IN SIX LANGUAGES

 WASHINGTON, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- With the introduction of a new MCI custom language Card, MCI becomes the exclusive provider of calling cards with voice-prompted dialing instructions in six languages. The MCI Card is available beginning today and is free to the consumer.
 This new MCI Card offers special toll-free access numbers for callers who prefer to hear voice-prompted dialing instructions in Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish or Vietnamese. The customized cards are offered in six versions, each one printed with step-by-step dialing instructions in the language chosen by the customer.
 The MCI Card features an easy to remember number, typically based on the customer's home phone number, plus a four-digit code. Customers may select their own four-digit code. Callers can use the calling card to make calls anywhere in the United States and to more than 250 international countries and places. Callers can also call back to the United States from over 80 countries.
 Callers who are members of MCI's Friends & Family program will receive a 20 percent bonus savings on every MCI Card call made in the United States or abroad to their home, and to members of their Calling Circles, who are also MCI customers. Friends & Family members using the MCI Card can save up to 26 percent over AT&T's standard state-to-state calling card rates.
 "MCI is proud to be the first to offer voice-prompted dialing instructions for our calling card holders who prefer to speak a language other than English. We are committed to serving the diverse needs of our customers, and MCI will continue to introduce new products and services for international callers," said Gerald H. Taylor, president of MCI Consumer Markets.
 MCI provides in-language customer service in six languages, seven days a week, 24 hours a day, at no cost to the consumer. Consumers who would like more information on the new MCI Card may call 1-800-825-8881 to reach a Cantonese-speaking representative, 1-800-888-4800 to reach a Japanese-speaking representative, 1-800-933-0550 to reach a Korean- speaking representative, 1-800-777-0958 to reach a Mandarin-speaking representative, 1-800-950-4652 to reach a Spanish-speaking representative, or 1-800-925-7413 to reach a Vietnamese-speaking representative.
