SOUTHERN BELL CREDITING BILLS OF DISPLACED STORM VICTIMS

 SOUTHERN BELL CREDITING BILLS OF DISPLACED STORM VICTIMS
 MIAMI, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Bell is working closely with


customers in area code 305 to assure that storm victims receive the proper credit for the number of days they are without service. Customers should check their bills to make sure that they are credited for service interruptions of more than 24 hours.
 "Customers who believe that they have not received the proper credit on their bills for the time that they did not have service should call the business office," said Southern Bell spokesperson Spero Canton. "In many instances, we are already aware of the number of days our customers have lost their telephone service, but we can't be sure in every case. Customers who have a question should call the business office," Canton said.
 "We realize that many customers, especially those who live in South Dade, will not even receive their bills," said Canton. "Customers should call 611 to report that their service is out of order and they should consider calling the business office to disconnect their service. We will be very happy to work out payment arrangements which are helpful to our customer," Canton said.
 In addition, the MFJ Court and the FCC approved Southern Bell's request to waive originating interstate access charges from emergency pay phone stations to inter-exchange carriers which are offering free toll services to hurricane victims. Southern Bell will file a complementary request for originating access on intrastate calls.
 "Good communications are an essential part of the recovery process for our community," Canton said. "Southern Bell is working closely with the PSC to meet the needs of our customers."
