Comcast Completes Migration of Customers to New Backbone

On Saturday, The New York Times reported that Comcast completed the migration of its customers off of the @Home Network. The new Comcast backbone was under construction prior to the Excite@Home bankruptcy, but had to be greatly accelerated in order to avoid substantial outages to its customers.

In the article, Comcast customers reported problems with using Comcast-provided email service. Every Comcast customer who had been using an email address in the "home.com" domain had to change email addresses to either comcast.net or another provider. This was bound to cause confusion and technical problems.
