       BellSouth's proposed tariff on MegaLink ISDN in Alabama clearly
  states the introduction of a flat-rate option to this private-line
  service, in contrast to Mr. Lesher's assertion that the company proposes
  to offer "volume usage" pricing.  (Incidentally, MegaLinkR ISDN is a
  service geared toward our larger business customers, and is not targeted
  to residential customers.)  Indeed, pricing for this and other private
  line services is already on a usage basis..  We are simply adding a flat
  rate option for MegaLink ISDN customers.  This is not a rate increase, by
  the way.  We hope this clears up any confusion on the matter.
