BellSouth will deploy 200 Nortel Millennium "intelligent" pay phones, made by Northern Telecom, in downtown Atlanta for use during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. BellSouth is one of the 12 merchants known to have signed with First Union Corp. to accept Visa Cash smart cards.

BellSouth's participation in the First Union Visa Cash launch will enable consumers to use the stored value cards to make local and long distance telephone calls using the next generation Millennium products.
