Subject: UUNET Year 2000 Customer Premise Equipment Information Notification

Dear Valued Customer:

UUNET Year 2000 Customer Premise Equipment Information Notification

UUNET is currently engaged in a project to evaluate its readiness for Year
2000.   The UUNET Year 2000 Program Office manages program activities that
encompass the customer global network and value-added services as well as
internal systems.  

UUNET is taking this opportunity to communicate with its customers
concerning their joint responsibilities for evaluating whether the
Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) used in conjunction with UUNET services
is Y2K compliant. This equipment includes routers, CSU/DSU's, firewalls,
servers and desktops.   

Although UUNET does not make any claim or warranty as to the Year 2000
compliance of this third-party equipment, we are providing you with the
sources of vendor compliance information in the web so that you can
evaluate the CPE's Year 2000 status.  We encourage you to contact the
manufacturers of your CPE for information on their Year 2000 programs and
the Year 2000 readiness of this equipment. 

The table on the next pages shows the type of equipment, the manufacturer
and the URL through which you may be able to obtain more information. This
list includes CPE that UUNET currently ships and supports.  You may own
other equipment that was not supplied by UUNET or that is not currently
shipped and supported by UUNET.

We hope that you will use this information to examine your CPE, assess its
Year 2000 readiness, and upgrade any equipment that may require such
action.  Should you have questions concerning  CPE, please call UUNET at
1-888 886 3865.

If you have questions concerning UUNET's Year 2000 Program, we hope you
will read our Year 2000 information at :
Direct inquiries to the Year 2000 Program Office can be made to

The information provided by UUNET in this letter constitutes a year 2000
readiness disclosure under the Year 2000 Information and Readiness
Disclosure Act (October 19, 1998, 105 U.S. Public Law 271, 112 Stat.
2386).  This Year 2000 readiness disclosure includes a republication of
Year 2000 statements originally made by the third party manufacturers of
the equipment listed below.  UUNET is not the source of these republished
statements, which have been supplied by another entity, which are based on
information UUNET has not verified.  Accordingly, UUNET is not responsible
for the republished information's accuracy, completeness, or currency.  

"UUNET" as used herein and the references to various networks, services,
and systems, refers only to UUNET and its networks, services, and systems,
and should not be construed as applying to MCI WORLDCOM Inc. ("MCI

We look forward to servicing you well into the new millenium!
