WorldCom, Clinton, MS, will offer up to an hour of free phone time if customers join AOL.


WorldCom customers who subscribe to MCI 5 Cents Everyday plans and join AOL will receive an hour of free phone time as long as they remain an MCI Worldcom long-distance customer. They will also receive 500 free hours of AOL in their first month of use and unlimited access for $21.95 a month after that. In addition, they will receive $200 in member savings at the AOL Online store.


Under the deal, WorldCom will offer its employees special pricing on a number of personal computers, as well as offer them AOL service as their preferred provider.
