INTERMEDIA SIGNS DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT TO
ACQUIRE EMERGING FLORIDA CLEC

 15,000 ACCESS LINES BOLSTER INTERMEDIA'S FLORIDA POSITION

Tampa, Florida (February 11, 1998) - Intermedia Communications 
(Nasdaq/NM: ICIX) today announced that it has signed a definitive 
agreement to acquire privately held National Telecommunications of 
Florida ("National Tel" or "National"), an emerging switch_based 
competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and established 
interexchange carrier, for approximately $151 million in stock and 
cash.

With annualized third quarter 1997 revenue of approximately $63 
million and annualized third quarter 1997 EBITDA of approximately $6 
million, National provides competitive local exchange and long 
distance voice services to more than 11,000 business customers 
concentrated in Florida's major markets.  Intermedia will target this 
customer base to cross_sell its broad portfolio of voice and data 
services, upon consummation of the acquisition.  With an employee base 
of 125, including 42 sales professionals, National has sold 
approximately 15,000 access line equivalents since late 1996.  It has 
interconnection agreements with BellSouth, GTE, and Sprint/United.
        
The $151 million purchase consideration consists of a combination of 
$45 million in cash and approximately $106 million of Intermedia 
common stock, or approximately 1.7 million shares (subject to certain 
adjustments).  Closing of the acquisition is subject to customary 
conditions, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals. 
 It is expected to close during the second quarter of 1998.

Should the acquisition of National and the pending Shared Technologies 
Fairchild and LDS acquisitions be consummated, Intermedia would have 
pro forma annualized third quarter 1997 revenue of approximately $642 
million and approximately $3 million pro forma annualized third

quarter 1997 EBITDA (before considering any synergies). The combined 
company would employ nearly 3,000 people, including approximately 650 
sales professionals; serve more than 91,000 business customers; and 
have 175,000 access lines in service as of the third quarter 1997.


Acquisition Strengthens Florida Market Share

"The combination of National and Intermedia would build upon our 
existing investments and satisfies our acquisition strategy by 
providing a solid customer base and adding knowledgeable and 
experienced personnel.  National would help build critical mass in 
this vital state market, critical mass that is a key component to 
sustained success.  Importantly, the proposed acquisition is accretive 
to Intermedia's financial performance," said David C. Ruberg, 
Intermedia's chairman, president and chief executive officer. 
 "National's burgeoning local exchange business, when coupled with 
Intermedia's, would create the fourth largest local exchange carrier 
and fourth largest long distance provider to business and government 
customers in Florida."

Financial Benefits
        
"We expect this transaction to solidify our Florida presence and to 
drive margin improvement through the migration of additional market 
share onto our network," stated Robert M. Manning, Intermedia's chief 
financial officer.  "A number of significant synergies are projected 
including a reduction in National's backbone pricing structure, 
elimination of redundant network facilities, reduction of expenses 
associated with local loop pricing, the reduction of costs related to 
switched traffic, savings in the recruiting and hiring of experienced 
personnel, and elimination of duplicative general and administrative 
costs."  Intermedia estimates these synergies to be approximately $5 
million per year by year-end 1999.

Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. served as financial advisor to Intermedia 
with regard to the proposed acquisition.

Intermedia will host a conference call on Thursday, February 12, 1998, 
at 9:00 a.m. EST to discuss this proposed transaction.  To participate 
in this conference, call (800) 798_6133.  A 24_hour replay will be 
available by calling (800) 633_8284, ID 3878517.

Statements contained in this news release regarding expected financial 
results and other planned events are forward_looking statements, 
subject to uncertainties and risks, including, but not limited to, the 
demand for Intermedia's services, and the ability of the Company to 
successfully implement its strategies, including consummation of the

Shared Technologies Fairchild, LDS, and National acquisitions, the 
successful integration of these acquisitions into Intermedia and the 
consequent realization of projected synergies, each of which may be 
impacted, among other things, by economic, competitive or regulatory 
conditions.  These and other applicable risks are summarized under the 
caption "Risk Factors" in the Company's Form 10_K Annual Report for 
its fiscal year ended December 31, 1996, and are updated periodically 
through the filing of reports and registration statements with the 
Securities and Exchange Commission.
