Deregulation frees long distance lines

Continued from Page 1)
Direct long distance dailing is part of
the federal government's deregulation
of AT&T. Last January the Federal
Communications Commission ruled
that phone users should enjoy the same
.access to private long distance com-
panies as to AT&T.
Customers should take a hard look at
alternative long distance services, said
Len Singer, a spokesman for Michigan
S "CUSTOMERS NOW should analyze

their telephone bills and evaluate the
various companies accordingly to find
the cheapest rates to the places they
call the most," Singer said.
"Choosing the best long distance
company for them is like finding out the
cheapest flight to any place out of
town," he added.
The switchover, however, will not af-
fect residents in the University's dor-
mitories. For at least another year,
students still will be required to dial
additional numbers in order to get ac-
cess to long distance companies other
than AT&T.
THE UNIVERSITY plans to install
its own phone network by 1986 that will
combine several long distance com-
panies to get the cheapest routes for
calls from dorms and offices on cam-*
pus, Block said. At that time students
will begin receiving phone bills from
the University and not outside long
distance companies, she added.
"Eventually we will be subscribing to

several different ,long distance ser-
vices. But right now we'll be staying
with AT&T," Block said.
Michigan Bell will hook up customers
to the company of their choice without
an extra charge and will complete the
switchover in two phases, Wroblewski
On Dec. 1, Ann Arbor residents with
the following phone number prefixes
will be given dial "1" access: 662, 663,
665, 668, 763, and 764. The remaining ex-
changes will be converted on Feb. 16,
The deregulation of the phone in-
dustry has allowed private long distan-
ce companies to use satellites instead of
telephone lines to transmit calls. This
switch has decreased charges and in-
creased the speed of transmission, said
Sarah Pentok, a sales representative
for MCI.
Customers of MCI and other alter-
native phone companies, however, will
not be able to make collect or person-to-
person calls, Pentok added.

Braine was thrown onto the hood of
Durfee's car and then went through the
windshield, Suomala said.
Yesterday, Braine was listed in fair
condition at University Hospital, ac-
cording to Stephen Hause, a hospital
spokesman. He said he could not
elaborate on the type of injuries she
The driver had not been drinking,
Suomala said.
Stereo system stolen
A stereo, speaker, small amount of
cash, and flashlights, all valuing less
than $850 were stolen early Tuesday
morning during a break-in on the 1200
block of Prospect, Ann Arbor police
Sgt. Jan Suomala said yesterday. He
said burglars entered through an
unlocked door.
Video recorder snatched
A video recorder valued- at less than
$725 was stolen during a break-in
Tuesday afternoon on the 200 block of
N. State Street. According to police, a
prowler gained entrance by cutting a
screen to get into a window.
