Excite pulls plug on AT&T

Excite@Home has turned off its service to
AT&T Broadband and its 850,000 Excite@Home subscribers after the two
companies were not able to reach agreement with AT&T.

According to Excite@Home, its other customers are still able to receive
broadband access as negotiations with Comcast and Cox continue.

According to the Associated Press, AT&T has already started transferring
its customers to its own network, a process that could take up to 10 days for
some subscribers.

About 86,000 customers in the Northwest were transferred to AT&T's own
network on Saturday.

Customers will receive two days free service for every day of
interruption and the transfer of networks is not expected to affect their
monthly rates.
