Microsoft Corp.'s MSN and MCI Inc. said on Monday they are teaming up to extend the reach of MSN's instant-messaging service into the crowded global computer-to-phone call market.

The deal will allow consumers to place calls for as little as 2.3 cents a minute -- undercutting rates MCI offers existing customers -- and highlighting the challenge Web-based calling poses to voice-based telephone businesses.
