PAYLESS CASHWAYS USES NEW VSAT NETWORK

 PAYLESS CASHWAYS USES NEW VSAT NETWORK
 MARIETTA, Ga., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Payless Cashways, Inc., a


leading building materials retailer, is now using its new AT&T Tridom (NYSE: T) very small aperture terminal (VSAT) network to communicate with more than 200 stores, distribution centers and district offices throughout the United States, the companies announced today.
 VSATs are compact earth stations installed at a customer's remote locations to send and receive communications signals by satellite.
 "We chose AT&T Tridom because we felt that they had the best technical solution for our needs," said Michael E. Mallett, director of computer operations and telecommunications for Payless Cashways. "AT&T Tridom was also the only company that met our requirements for equipment, service and support in a single-vendor package."
 The Payless Cashways organization, which has grown to include Furrow, Lumberjack, Hugh M. Woods, Somerville and Knox Lumber stores, has its headquarters in Kansas City, Mo. The company uses the VSAT network and AT&T Skynet(R) Clearlink Service to transmit credit card verification, sales and personnel data from remote stores to an AT&T shared hub station in Atlanta.
 "We wanted to put a network in place that would take us through the '90s and allow us to add applications without replacing our existing hardware," said Craig J. Luebs, director of technical services for Payless Cashways. "The flexibility of AT&T Tridom's network architecture allows us to do that."
 AT&T Tridom, headquartered in Marietta, Ga., designs, manufactures and markets VSATs, hub stations and other hardware and software for implementing satellite-based data communications networks.
