Last paragraph of article read:
" MCI's move is a step away from its relationship with News Corp,, whose
Delphi on-line service, with 200,000 customers, is about a quarter the
size of Microsoft's MSN."
Bye Bye, Delphi.
It is a wonder to me that Microsoft is using UUNET for MSN dialup and MCI
for, to quote the article, "Internet access and telecommunications
provider". If I was with UUNET, I certainly would be upset that I get to
watch modems blink while MCI gets to hyperstream.

Can we now get MSNBC over our MCI ISDN?
Did anyone else note the MSNBC advertisement following the SuperBowl?
