WorldCom To Change Name To MCI

from the you-can-run,-but... dept

As was rumored a few months ago, Worldcom has decided to change their name to MCI in an attempt to ditch the “Worldcom stigma” of hearing the name in conjunction with “scandal” and “bankruptcy” for the past year or so. Somehow, I doubt such a simple name change will do much to change people’s impression of the company. I think most people will know that the two companies are the same, but they’ll still spend millions of dollars they really don’t have to “rebrand”.
