Such a plan should include getting a second service provider, doing an inventory of the service WorldCom provides to a company, not signing up for new WorldCom services until the company's financial picture is clearer and possibly hiring a professional services firm to manage the telecommunications services provided by multiple providers, he said.

Companies who are already WorldCom customers don't have a way out of their contracts yet, he said.

"Nothing that has happened so far has done anything to affect the validity of the contract with WorldCom," Neil said. "Enterprises must not be stampeding into a rash decision and potentially make the situation worse."
