MCI INTRODUCES NEWEST INTERNATIONAL CALLING PLAN: CALL SOUTH & CENTRAL AMERICA

 MCI INTRODUCES NEWEST INTERNATIONAL CALLING PLAN:
 CALL SOUTH & CENTRAL AMERICA
 WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers can now take advantage of MCI's newest International Calling Plan, Call South & Central America, and receive additional savings when calling Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. As an introductory offer, all new customers who enroll in MCI's Call South & Central America will receive a $20 certificate which may be applied to any monthly long distance phone bill.
 Call South & Central America is available to all MCI customers for low flat per-minute rates during calling plan hours and a monthly subscription fee of $3. Plan details include:
 South America:
 -- 65 cents per minute to Brazil and 54 cents per minute to Venezuela. Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-8 a.m.; all day Saturday; and Sunday until 8 a.m. Monday.
 -- 65 cents per minute to Colombia, Peru and Uruguay. Monday- Friday, 10 p.m.-2 p.m.; all day Saturday; and Sunday until 2 p.m. Monday.
 Central America:
 -- 62 cents per minute to Costa Rica, Honduras and Panama. Monday-Friday 10 p.m.-2 p.m.; all day Saturday; and Sunday until 2 p.m. Monday.
 "By combining South and Central American countries under one calling plan, customers will receive convenience and simplicity," said Timothy Price, senior vice president of MCI Consumer and Commercial Markets. "Because of various time zone differences within the countries in South and Central America, this plan offers MCI customers three different low flat rates and two different sets of calling plan hours."
 Call South & Central America may be combined with MCI's Friends & Family International which offers a customer an additional 20 percent savings to one international number. Customers who add someone with a phone number in these countries to their Calling Circle, and call during plan hours, will pay the low rate of 52 cents per minute to Venezuela, and 50 cents per minute to Costa Rica, Honduras and Panama on calls to that number.
 "All of MCI's International Calling Plans combine competitive rates with flexible hours which are important when staying in touch with friends and families living abroad. Call South & Central America, MCI's sixth International Calling Plan, will meet a growing consumer demand within the United States," Price added.
 Other MCI International Calling Plans include:
 Call Canada -- 17 cents per minute to every Canadian province. Monday - Friday, 5 p.m. - 8 a.m.; all day Saturday; and Sunday until 8 a.m. Monday.
 Call Europe -- 59 cents per minute to 24 Western European countries. Monday - Friday, 3 p.m. - 8 a.m.; all day Saturday; and Sunday until 8 a.m. Monday.
