<<PRINCETON, N.J. AND BOSTON, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- RCN Corporation (Nasdaq: RCNC - news) announced it has signed a contract with the Boston Housing Authority (BHA) to provide BHA residents its unique ResiLink bundle of telecommunications services as part of the largest multi-dwelling unit agreement for RCN to date.

The contract agreement gives RCN access to all 14,000 units in BHA's 64 developments throughout Boston, and provides BHA residents with their first choice of a cable TV, local phone and high-speed Internet provider. The numerous properties should be connected to RCN's Megaband(SM) Network within three years.

``We think it's important for all of our residents to have the ability to choose the phone, cable and high-speed Internet services they want,' said Sandra Henriquez, administrator at BHA. ``These services have become more important in everyday life, helping to meet basic needs like finding a job or getting the subway schedule.'

RCN services currently are available to residents of Orchard Park and Mission Main. Both RCN and BHA will expand these choices to the 62 remaining properties, including Hampton House, St. Botolph Apartments, Fairmount, Rockland Towers and General Warren. Under a special agreement, RCN is also providing communications service to offices and youth centers in the BHA developments.

``We believe BHA residents will discover that our ResiLink bundles provide the best value and choice anywhere in Boston,' said Jeffrey White, president of RCN's Customer and Field Operations Group. ``We deliver our phone, cable TV and high-speed Internet services over RCN's own high-capacity Megaband Network.'

The Boston Metropolitan area is the largest of RCN's operating territories. It includes Arlington, Somerville, Waltham, Newton, Watertown, Framingham, Lexington, Brookline, Burlington, Dedham and Needham, as well as the Hyde Park and Allston/Brighton sections of Boston.
