Worldcom Gets Snagged On The Net

WORLDCOM GETS SNAGGED ON THE NET

BUSY SIGNALS IN BRUSSELS? As WorldCom tries to complete its acquisition of MCI Communications, the European Union is voicing some objections over the two companies' combined share of the Internet market. The EU's antitrust enforcement arm says its review may take another four months. The objections are unlikely to stop the acquisition, but the EU could force certain conditions, such as guarantees that its Net backbone will be accessible to others. It also could force the combined company to divest itself of some Net businesses.EDITED BY PAT WECHSLER
