Instead of asking Marie for some answers, now we can call for answers. What is the first question anybody?? End to end testing perhaps?

A toll-free telephone hotline set up by the President Clinton's Council on Year 2000 (Y2K) Conversion has added information on all aspects of the US telecommunications industry.

Callers to the number can now obtain current information regarding the Y2K readiness of 911 and other emergency services, broadcast television, telephone, cellular, paging, other wireless services, cable and satellite television, AM/FM radio and international telephone services.

FCC Commissioner Michael Powell, Chair of the FCC Year 2000 Task Force, said in a statement, "The telecommunications industry, for some time, has been deliberately attentive to the conveyance of solid information and data that the general public can use to prepare sensibly for the date change."

The Y2K Council's toll-free number is 1-888-USA-4Y2K (1-888-872-4925). Y2K information about all telecommunications industries is available as option number three. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Information specialists are available to answer questions and provide additional information during regular business hours.

The President's Y2K Council Website is at http://www.y2k.gov .
