SPRINT ADDS ISRAEL TO ITS SPRINT WORLD CALLING PROGRAM

 SPRINT ADDS ISRAEL TO ITS SPRINT WORLD CALLING PROGRAM
 WASHINGTON, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE: FON) announced today it has added Israel to the countries included under Sprint WORLD, the company's international discount calling plan.
 Callers can use Sprint WORLD to contact Israel and 39 other countries at low per-minute rates for a $3 monthly fee. Under this plan, calls to Israel are just 73 cents a minute for the entire weekend -- 24-hours-a-day on Saturday and Sunday -- and weekdays from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Sprint WORLD rates to Israel are lower than those available from AT&T's similar plan.
 A ten-minute call to Israel during the standard weekend rate period would cost $13.78. The same call on Sprint WORLD's discount plan would cost $7.30 -- a savings of $6.48.
 "Sprint responded to a growing customer demand to add Israel to the list of countries discounted through Sprint WORLD," said Dave Schmieg, president of Sprint's Consumer Services Group. "Sprint WORLD now offers international callers substantial discounts to 40 countries around the world."
 Sprint WORLD customers also gain other benefits:
 -- More hours to call. Sprint WORLD offers up to 10 more plan hours per week than the other major long distance carriers.
 -- Earlier plan hours. Discount calling starts earlier than competitors. Because of time differences, earlier plan hours can help American callers reach foreign parties during normal calling hours.
 -- The advantages of Sprint PLUS. Customers on Sprint WORLD are automatically placed on the company's primary calling plan, Sprint PLUS.
 Sprint PLUS provides an automatic 20 to 30 percent discount, depending on usage, on all direct-dial state-to-state calls made during evening, night and weekend rate periods. The plan also provides a 10 percent discount on direct-dial state-to-state calls made during the daytime rate period. These discounts apply when callers spend at least $20 a month.
 -- Additional international discounts. Sprint PLUS callers earn a 5 percent discount on direct-dial calls to countries not already discounted under Sprint WORLD's 40-country calling list.
 Sprint is a diversified international telecommunications company with $8.8 billion in annual revenues and the United States' only nationwide all-digital, fiber-optic network. Its divisions provide global long distance voice, data and video products and services, and local telephone services to more than 4 million subscriber lines in 17 states.
