SPRINT CALLING SERVICE ALLOWS OVERSEAS CALLERS TO REACH VIRTUALLY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD

 SPRINT CALLING SERVICE ALLOWS OVERSEAS CALLERS
 TO REACH VIRTUALLY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
 WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Callers traveling overseas now can use Sprint Express to call 200 countries at rates averaging 12 percent less than competing calling services offered by AT&T and MCI, with savings of at least 20 percent to many countries.
 Sprint Express provides callers traveling outside the United States with a local toll-free number that allows them to connect with a Sprint operator in the United States. The new overseas-to-overseas calling feature allows callers in participating Sprint Express countries to place calls to any of 200 countries, in addition to the United States. Callers save money by bypassing costly hotel and carrier connection charges and benefit from Sprint's low international calling rates.
 "Travelers who have enjoyed the convenience and economy of Sprint Express for calling to the U.S. now can use the same service for calling to virtually anywhere in the world," said Paolo Guidi, president of Sprint International, Sprint's global telecommunications subsidiary. "It's an invaluable service for the global traveler that lets them make international calls as easily as they would from the U.S.," he said.
 Charges for the new overseas-to-overseas calling feature of Sprint Express will be equal to Sprint Express rates and surcharges for calls to the United States plus $1.25 per minute. Callers may charge the call to Sprint FONCARDs, U.S. local telephone company calling cards, and to participating American Express and Discover credit cards.
 International termination is an enhancement to Sprint Express, which was introduced in 1990 to offer international travelers a cost- effective and simple way to call home to the United States. Today, callers can still use Sprint Express to call the United States from 51 countries and international locations by calling collect, or by charging calls to Sprint FONCARDs, U.S. local telephone company calling cards, and to participating American Express and Discover credit cards.
 Sprint (NYSE: FON) is a diversified international telecommunications company with $8.9 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.
