Bell Atlantic, MFS sign interconnection agreements

Published on .

Bell Atlantic Corp. and MFS Communications signed a three-year agremeent to interconnect their networks in Washington, D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The agreement will allow Bell Atlantic to soon begin offering long-distance service in those states; conversely, the agreement also allows Omaha, Neb.-based MFS to provide local telephone service, using its own digital switching and fiber-optics based network. Earlier this week Bell Atlantic asked regulators to intercede in its negotiations with AT&T, claiming that the long distance company was stallking the talks in hopes of delaying Bell Atlantic's entry into long distance.
