DOJ shifts its comm to Sprint

The Justice Department this month will begin cutting over its international voice service to Sprint Corp., whose FTS 2001 contract it chose last month. Sprint also provides FTS 2001 domestic video and data service to Justice.

The international business is worth an estimated $15 million over the life of the contract. Justice until now has used international service providers AT&T Corp. and WorldCom Inc.

Sprint and WorldCom in December 1998 won the FTS 2001 long-distance service contracts. A company spokesman said 74.5 percent of the federal sites slated for conversion had, by early July, moved to the new contract. All cutovers are supposed to be complete by Oct. 1.
