Historical Note

MCI Communications Corporation (MCI) was a large telecommunications company. It was organized in October 1963 in Joliet, Illinois, by John D. (Jack) Goeken (1930-2010), as Microwave Communications, Inc. Goeken and his partners were planning to provide point-to-point private line microwave communications between Chicago and St. Louis to small businesses that could not afford high telephone rates offered by American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) – a de facto monopoly of the United States telecommunications at that time. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved an application from Microwave Communications to construct and operate a private microwave system in August 1969. The approval opened an era of competition in telecommunications industry.

William G. McGowan (1927-1992), who joined the company in 1968, brought in a different vision of its future - participation in the construction of a nationwide common carrier communications system. In August 1968, McGowan incorporated a new company, Microwave Communications of America (MICOM), which changed its name to MCI Communications Corporation, Inc. (MCI) in July 1971. MICOM was created to sponsor the development of affiliated regional companies with local financing, and Microwave Communications became one of sixteen such companies. By March 1971, all regional companies had filed for construction permits for their section of the planned nationwide network. In August 1972, MCI acquired Interdata Communications, Inc., which controlled a New York-Washington microwave route. In February 1973, MCI Telecommunications Corporation (MCIT) was formed as a long distance communications subsidiary of MCI, and during the 1970s all regional carriers merged into it.

AT&T and its affiliated local Bell Companies used their control over local networks as leverage for rate increases and denied connections to their network by MCI and other common carriers. In 1973, with McGowan’s (CEO) and MCI Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, Kenneth A. Cox's (1916-) testimonies at the Senate subcommittee MCI launched a campaign against AT&T for violation of U.S. antitrust laws. A decade long regulatory and legal battle changed the very essence of telecommunications in the United States. By the final judgment of the antitrust suit of the U.S. Department of Justice against AT&T (1974-1982), AT&T was divested from its regional companies and all telecommunications companies received an equal access to their network facilities starting from January 1, 1984.

After winning the right to connect its network to local systems, MCI faced another challenge – it had to fight for the business of government, commercial, and residential markets. Before 1984 these customers did not have any choice of telecommunications carrier and used to think of AT&T as the only reliable service provider. MCI’s vigorous advertising campaign introduced innovative sales techniques to the telecommunications industry, such as comparative and negative advertising, celebrity endorsements, extensive telemarketing, local paper ads, and marketing partnerships. This campaign helped MCI gain the level of profitability necessary for staying in competition with rapidly growing telecommunications companies. An important direction of the MCI business development was the company’s involvement into international telecommunications. To pursue this goal MCI acquired two large international communications carriers: Western Union International, Inc. in 1982 and RCA Global Communications, Inc. (Globcom) in 1988, both merging into MCI’s subsidiary MCI International, Inc. During the 1980s, MCI International became one of the dominant international carriers offering leased-line, voice, and electronic mail services in 146 countries. It restructured monopolistic foreign telecommunications markets into competitive ones, stimulating industry growth and making possible its transformation into an integrated global network.

MCI’s rapid progress on telecommunications markets was primarily due to its steady interest in emerging technologies. For instance, MCI was one of the first companies to invest in satellite communications in order to extend its network to the areas where the microwave system could not reach. Formed as early as 1971, joint venture MCI Lockheed Satellite Corporation requested domestic satellite communications authorization from the FCC. In 1974 the company was sold to IBM but in 1986 the same satellite business was bought back by MCI under the name Satellite Business Systems (SBS), which became its subsidiary.

In its aspiration for engaging in new technologies, MCI sometimes appeared to be ahead of time. Efforts to enter paging and cellular phone business in the first half of 1980s via MCI Airsignal subsidiary failed because it lacked subscribers’ interest. MCI returned to the cellular business in 1995.

MCI entered in the electronic mail market in 1983 by introducing MCI Mail, a new data transmission service, which combined the speed of electronic messages with the flexibility of a land courier service. But at that time the public was not ready for the communications via computer, and MCI had to shrink its electronic mail operations in 1985. However, in 1988, enhanced with the fax service, MCI Mail became a valuable product; and in 1990s, combined with Internet access, paging and fax services, and video conferencing, it completed MCI’s portfolio of on-line services called networkMCI.

MCI was the first American company seriously engaged in implementation of fiber optic technology. In 1983 it ordered over 150,000 miles of single-mode fiber optic cable; in March 1984 the Washington, D.C – New York segment of new system became operational; and in 1989 MCI owned two complete transcontinental fiber optic networks that carried a large volume of voice and data traffic at high speeds with high quality. MCI also was the second largest U.S. owner in a joint venture of the first transatlantic fiber optic telephone cable. When in December 1991, MCI converted its entire network from analog to digital transmission, its modernized system turned into an “intelligent network,” which was compatible with other international networks and allowed the company to market new services and attract new business partners in the last decade of the 20th century. In June 1992, the company lost its long-time leader chairman Bill McGowan due to a cardiac arrest. He had his first heart attack in December 1986, survived heart transplantation in April 1987, and returned to an active role in the management of MCI in September of the same year. His death and his role as a telecommunications industry pioneer and visionary were widely reported in the media.

Positioning itself as a company ready to get into the information age ahead of its competitors and to offer customers integrated global voice, data, and networking services, MCI in 1993 developed the “networkMCI” strategy that consisted of several components: creation of a nationwide information superhighway, entry into local telecommunications, building a wireless network integrated with MCI’s products, and formation of global alliances in order to provide seamless services to multinational customers.

Following this strategy, MCI used the high speed SONET technology to provide the National Science Foundation with a new information network NSFNET, a part of rapidly growing Internet (1993). When President Bill Clinton signed the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which declared local telecommunications available for competition, MCI was one of the first long distance carriers to enter the marketplace. It used operating facilities in major metropolitan areas owned by its subsidiary MCImetro which was created in 1994 in anticipation of competitive local telephone business. To capture a share of the lucrative wireless telecommunications market, MCI in 1995 purchased Nationwide Cellular Service, Inc., the largest independent reseller of cellular services in the country and made agreements with messaging companies SkyTel Corporation and Paging Network, Inc. MCI’s agreements with Stentor group representing Canadian telephone companies; BT, formerly British Telecommunication; and business venture AVANTEL with Mexican Grupo Financiero Banamex-Accival (Banacci) in 1992-1994 shaped international communications of information age.

In the late 1990s MCI sought a partner in order to increase capital for more efficient competition with domestic and international carriers. After the cancellation of a proposed merger with British Telecommunications Corporation (BT), MCI entered into a merger with the rapidly growing telecommunications firm WorldCom. The agreement completed on September 15, 1998, created MCI WorldCom, Inc., a company that provided local, long distance and international full range telecommunications services such as voice, data, Internet and wireless. To separate its two distinct businesses, at the end of 2000, WorldCom, Inc., arranged two business groups under its umbrella: WorldCom group (high-growth data, Internet, hosting and international businesses), and MCI group (high-cash flow consumer, small business, wholesale long-distance voice and dial-up Internet access); and created two separately traded stocks. The corporation received a SEC Inquiry in April 2002 regarding its capital expenditure accounting irregularities, and as a result of independent audits and financial investigation, filed for bankruptcy on July 21, 2002. Under the Plan of Reorganization filed by WorldCom, Inc. with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in April 2003, the company changed its brand name to MCI. In 2006 the company was bought by Verizon.
