Founded in 1983 and merged with MCI in 1997 to become MCI WorldCom.
In February 1998, WorldCom acquired CompuServe from its parent company H&R Block. WorldCom then retained the CompuServe Network Services Division, sold its online service to America Online, and received AOL's network division, ANS.
In 2000, MCI WorldCom changed names yet again back to just WorldCom.
