Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile's Bartlett Named President of New England and Upstate
New York Region

PHILADELPHIA -- Bell Atlantic announced today that
Thomas A. Bartlett is appointed president of the New England and Upstate
New York region for Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile. He succeeds Benjamin L.
Scott who last week was named president and CEO of PCS PrimeCo.

Bartlett, who has extensive operations and management experience
in the U.S. wireless industry, will be responsible for the corporation's
global wireless interests which operate in high-growth markets in North
America, Latin America and Europe.

"We are eager to have Tom join Bell Atlantic's international

the wireless industry and in international business will greatly enhance
our international wireless operations."

Bartlett has held a number of senior positions at Bell Atlantic
Mobile, including regional vice president-Philadelphia/New Jersey, where
he was responsible for sales, marketing, engineering, administration,
finance and network systems expansion in Philadelphia, New Jersey and
Delaware. Previously, he was vice president-business development at Bell
Atlantic Mobile. Among his achievements, he headed the steering
committee that oversaw the acquisition of Metro Mobile CTS, one of the
largest cellular carriers at that time. Bartlett also has held CFO
positions in other Bell Atlantic businesses, including one based in London
with the European operations of Bell Atlantic Business System Services,
the largest independent computer service organization in the world and a
subsidiary of Bell Atlantic. Bartlett began his career in 1981 with
