SPRINT ADDS DATA 'TOOL' TO ITS SPRINT CLARITY 'TOOL KIT,' MAKING IT THE FIRST INTEGRATED VOICE AND DATA PLATFORM IN THE INDUSTRY

 KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE: FON) today announced a new "tool" for small to medium-size businesses -- Sprint Clarity Data. Sprint is now including data with voice in its Sprint Clarity business offering, making it the industry's first single-platform "tool kit" with the voice and data telecommunications products and services a business needs.
 Sprint Clarity -- a comprehensive single-platform package for customers -- offers discounts of up to 25 percent on voice services. Sprint Clarity includes volume discounts, regional and national rates, custom billing options and other features.
 Now businesses can receive significant discounts on Sprint's "tool kit" of unequaled data services.
 Sprint Clarity customers who purchase Sprint Clarity Data services will receive an automatic 5 percent discount on select data services. If a customer signs a one-, two- and three-year "term" data-service agreement with Sprint, the Sprint Clarity discount will be in addition to the "term" discount.
 "Telecommunications is a management tool to help small and medium-size businesses," said Patti Manuel, president of Sprint's Business Services Group. "By including a new tool -- data -- in the Sprint Clarity tool kit, Sprint gives small to medium-size businesses the resources of the larger businesses. Sprint Clarity is a one-stop solution for all a business' locations, whether customers are dialing up hosts from their home-office computer, interconnecting Local Area Networks or making a simple long distance call."
 Demand is booming among businesses for services such as remote- to-host computer connectivity, electronic mail and Local Area Network (LAN) connectivity. For example, nearly three-quarters of businesses with computers use a modem at least once a week and two-thirds of small businesses with more than four personal computers dedicate at least one phone line for data communications.
