Comcast Lets AT&T Customers Hang Onto Email Addresses
from the Comcast-hears-the-outcry dept
Following the handful of stories last month pointing out that customers of AT&T Broadband would have to switch their email addresses (just a year after most of them had to switch from an @home.com or a @mediaone.net email address) apparently created a big enough public outcry that Comcast realized they needed to do something. They went back to AT&T and worked out a deal to let customers keep their attbi.com addresses through the end of 2004. They admit that the outcry made them look for alternatives, as they realized it would be bad to start off on the wrong foot with so many new customers.
