MCI LAUNCHES END-TO-END INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE LINE DIGITAL SERVICES BETWEEN UNITED STATES AND BRITAIN

 WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI Communications Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MCIC) today announced its first end-to-end trans- Atlantic digital private line service to the United Kingdom. Designed for companies expanding their business overseas, MCI Managed Service Links (MSL) offers customers a single point of contact for ordering, implementation, billing, network management and control, and service quality guarantee.
 Traditionally, international private line services are sold as "half circuits." For example, a U.S. customer would buy a half circuit from MCI, and a second half from the communications provider in the country of the overseas destination. With MCI MSL, MCI manages the full distance between the two countries.
 "MCI Managed Service Links broadens our portfolio of Global Communications Services by offering single point of contact, integrated billing, facility management, global network management and overseas support," said Yousef Javadi, MCI's director of global communications services. "Since MCI manages the entire length of the circuit, customers will gain a higher quality, guaranteed service level at a competitive price."
 According to Javadi, MCI takes responsibility for the complete circuit -- all network monitoring, fault reporting, and trouble isolation and resolution will be handled by a single point of contact at MCI.
 MCI MSL was developed in response to evolving customer requirements for fast, easy, high quality international digital private line services. MCI MSL connections are provided via a pre-provisioned E-1 trans-Atlantic fiber optic cable. The service is offered in digital bandwidths of 64 Kbps, 128 Kbps and 256 Kbps. Newbridge multiplexers will be utilized to provide individual customer circuit compatibility. The circuits can be installed usually within 45 days after the order is placed. MCI MSL quick provisioning cuts the usual 90-day installation time of traditional half circuit service by 50 percent.
 MCI Managed Service Links complements MCI's other end-to-end private line services between the United States and Venezuela and Peru. The company plans
to expand MCI MSL to several additional locations in Europe and Asia. MCI Communications Corporation, headquartered i n Washington, offers a full range of domestic and global telecommunications services through one of the world's largest state-of-the-art networks. The company, with 1992 revenue of more than $10.5 billion, is the second largest long distance provider in the United States and has more than 60 overseas offices in 55 countries.
