GTE STARTS INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MESSAGING BETWEEN JAPAN AND US

GTE is to start an international electronic messaging service for voice, electronic mail, still pictures and facsimile traffic, using its telemessaging service, TMS, and TV telephones – between Japan and the US from this autumn and will form a planning company for it this month. The service, which is also planned to extend to the UK, will rely on Nippon Telegraph and Telephone’s network within Japan. Night-time rates to the US and the voice mail service will be 40% cheaper than current services in the same area, offered by Kokusai Denshin Denwa, KDD. GTE will use international dial-up lines to connect to subsidiary GTE Telemessager leased lines in the US. GTE is expecting great demand from Japanese companies expanding overseas.
