Excite creditors squeeze AT&T

2001-11-30 17:33:07+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Excite creditors threaten shutdown to sweeten acquisition deals. I guess I just don't get it, it's not like AT&T should have problem getting fast IP to just about anywhere, the only real issue is mail servers and reconfiguring the DHCP stuff. Seems to me like @Home creditors should consider themselves lucky for any money at all they get out of this deal, and then they should kick themselves for investing in a company that paid over $700M for a weekend's worth of programming and some graphic designers. Oh well, I guess I'll see this evening if I still have connectivity.

It does not look good for Excite@Home subscribers.
