New solution brings increased business efficiencies

Oslo, Norway, 1 December 2005 - MCI, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCIP) today announced that Yara, the world’s largest supplier of mineral fertilizers, has signed a three year contract with MCI in Norway for a total telecommunication solution. Within the scope of the contract MCI has arranged to provide telecoms services, communication solutions, land-line and mobile traffic to Yara.

By choosing MCI, Yara is benefiting from the operating efficiencies of using one of the largest networks in the world, while also leveraging the innovation and reliability of MCI’s services. MCI’s total solution enables Yara to use their resources more efficiently, which is one of its key operational priorities.
