Bell Atlantic - Delaware Responds To Federal Court Ruling On IntraLATA Presubscription

ruled in favor of intraLATA presubscription. IntraLATA presubscription

enables customers to dial 1+ or 0+ a ten-digit phone number and have

that call routed to the company they select to provide their regional

toll service. Regional toll calls are outside the local calling area,

but are not as far as long distance. The following response statement

may be attributed to Joshua W. Martin III, president and CEO, Bell

Atlantic - Delaware.

"We are very disappointed with the court's decision, which puts us at

a competitive disadvantage.

"While we oppose this ruling because it creates an unlevel playing

field between Bell Atlantic and its competitors, the court has spoken

and we will implement intraLATA presubscription in Delaware

immediately."
