SPRINT TO RESTORE LONG DISTANCE SERVICE THIS EVENING

 SPRINT TO RESTORE LONG DISTANCE SERVICE THIS EVENING
 Sprint will complete restoral of all residential and much of its


business traffic this evening in the areas of South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida and Georgia where service was disrupted earlier today due to flooding in Fairfax, S.C. One of Sprint's 43 domestic switches is located in Fairfax. Much of the traffic has already been restored.
 With the cooperation of local telephone companies in the affected areas, Sprint has routed its calls to other carriers until its switch can be brought back into service. Sprint engineers are working closely with switch vendor Northern Telecom to assess damage to its switch and return to normal operations.
 In the meantime, customers' calls will be automatically routed over other carriers' networks.
 Sprint took the Fairfax switch out of service at 1:30 a.m. Eastern time Friday because of extensive flooding caused by heavy rains in the area.
 CONTACT: Steve Dykes of Sprint, 202-828-7435 or, after hours, 703-242-1769.
