Excite@Home Stops Accepting New Customers
CNET News.com reports that Excite@Home has stopped accepting new broadband customers in order to conserve cash. It is not clear exactly how this impacts @Home partners such as Comcast and Cox Communications, although Cox released an explicit statement last week reiterating its commitment to uninterrupted high speed internet service.
CTDATA does business with Comcast for broadband access at our Lawrenceville, NJ office. Our service is, however, provided by their business communications unit. We have not noticed any affect on our service since Excite@Home declared bankruptcy, although the routing of our Internet traffic goes over @Home facilities quite often. We will keep an eye on the situation and provide updates as the situation warrants.
Update: We have now done several stories on the impact of various aspects of Excite's bankruptcy on cable companies and their customers. To see other stories, search CTDATA for Comcast Excite.
