Sprint Corp., Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom and Global One Tuesday launched Global Intranet. Each of the partners will market Global Intranet to multinational corporations within their respective countries; Global One will market the service everywhere else. Trials with a few customers begin in the first quarter of 1997, and full service is scheduled for a mid-1997 rollout. The new service will allow organizations to harness similar technologies used in the Web for use in their own enterprise-wide networks.
