Excite@Home Still Alive… Barely
from the not-dead-yet dept
So, it seems that I’ll have AT&T@Home cable modem service at least until midnight tonight. The judge ordered everyone to get back to negotiating to try to work out a settlement. However, he did indicate that he won’t prevent them from turning off the network if the negotations don’t turn up much. He says he thinks it would be “regrettable”, but no big deal since it doesn’t effect anyone’s health or safety. Obviously, he doesn’t have broadband access that he’s about to lose. Too bad they couldn’t get a judge who was a customer, and threatened him with losing his high speed access. Update: Well, it’s 7am Saturday morning, and my @Home service does not appear to be working, but who knows if that’s in any way related to the shutdown. I do see that the special page AT&T set up to keep us informed of all the latest breaking news is down, which is so helpful and so typical. Actually, their whole customer service site is down. Thanks AT&T.
