UP-TO-MINUTE OLYMPIC RESULTS ARE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS WITH THE NEW MCI CARD

 UP-TO-MINUTE OLYMPIC RESULTS ARE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
 WITH THE NEW MCI CARD
 WASHINGTON, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Odds-on favorite Kim Zmeskal makes an extraordinary comeback from a miss on the balance beam to achieve near-perfect scores the very next night -- and to stay in contention for the all-around gymnastics title. Anchor Jenny Thompson swims the fastest leg in history to propel the U.S. team toward winning the gold medal and setting a world record for the 400- meter freestyle relay.
 Whether you are wrestling with your workload back in the office or spending a marathon evening in an airport, exciting, up-to-the- minute results of the XXV Summer Olympic Games are at your fingertips when you access MCI ExpressInfo, an advanced feature of the new MCI calling card.
 From now through the close of the Olympic Games on Aug. 9, MCI ExpressInfo will offer Olympic results -- updated every 30 minutes, or sooner if there is a special announcement -- in addition to regularly featured information including stock, weather and news reports.
 Olympic updates are approximately three minutes in length and are easily accessible when using the new MCI Card. MCI customers dial an 800 number and hear voice instructions that guide them through all possible uses of the card. Olympic information may be accessed by pressing "asterisk (star) 1" from the main card menu. Customers will then hear a series of options and select option two for Olympic results. Callers have a choice of six Olympic topics which summarize the latest events and results. The sixth selection provides the current Olympic medal count per country.
 MCI was the first major long distance company to offer advanced features such as conference calling, MCI Messenger, speed dialing and MCI ExpressInfo to consumers in connection with a single calling card. MCI ExpressInfo, the feature providing Olympic coverage, allows customers to access key information, such as weather forecasts, sports scores, financial and stock quotes, headline news and general features for only 49 cents per minute.
 MCI Communications Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MCIC), headquartered in Washington, is the nation's second largest long distance provider. MCI offers residential savings through a number of products and services including: Friends & Family; MCI PrimeTime; MCI Personal 800; MCI Around the World; MCI Messenger; the MCI Card and the Friends & Family Card.
