 WASHINGTON, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI customers may save up to 47 percent on their calls to Israel with the company's newest International Calling Plan, Call Israel.

 A 10-minute call to Israel during a standard rate period costs $13.78 with AT&T's basic international long-distance rates. The same call with MCI's Call Israel costs only $7.30, a savings of $6.48. And combined with Friends & Family International, the same call to a Calling Circle member in Israel would cost only $5.84, a savings of $7.94.

Customers who add an international phone number in Israel to their Calling Circle will pay the low rate of 58 cents per minute when calling that friend or family member in Israel during Call Israel plan hours.
 "Call Israel from MCI provides customers with an accessible and economical way to call Israel," said Timothy F. Price, senior vice president, MCI Consumer and Commercial Markets.
