ASHBURN, Va. -- MCI (MCIA.PK) today announced the expanded availability of MCI Advantage, its award-winning, hosted Voice over IP (VoIP) solution, to more business segments via MCI's Digital Subscriber Line (DSL). Available in a variety of access speeds, MCI Advantage via DSL addresses the bandwidth demands of satellite and smaller offices, extending MCI's ability to provide businesses of all sizes with feature-rich, IP- based voice, data and video communications.

Available since 2001, MCI Advantage integrates voice and data services while meeting and exceeding the capabilities of traditional PBX services, including dialing plans, range privileges, and enhanced call routing with unlimited local and domestic long distance calling. With three years of experience providing a hosted voice over IP business service combined with its nationwide DSL and local coverage, MCI continues to set the pace for businesses wanting to simply and cost-effectively take advantage of the benefits of VoIP.

DSL access to MCI Advantage is immediately available via MCI's facilities-based DSL service, which covers markets serving many of the top US metropolitan service areas (MSAs) including Los Angeles, CA, Boston, MA and Chicago, IL. Later this year, MCI will more than double its Advantage DSL coverage to reach more than four million businesses via an existing agreement with Covad.

"With new cost-effective broadband access to MCI Advantage, companies of all sizes will be able to migrate to converged networking services more simply," said Nancy Gofus, senior vice president of MCI Product Development. "MCI's unmatched collection of local, DSL, data and Internet assets enables the Company to offer small/medium businesses in markets such as New York, San Francisco and Washington DC, the ability to evolve their communications solutions and reduce their overall costs."
