@Home, cable companies in temporary pact


— 12:00 AM on December 3, 2001

Disaster has been averted, at least temporarily, for hundreds of thousands of cable modem users on @Home's network. AT&T pulled the plug, but a dozen other companies reached a deal with @Home to keep those cable modem lights lit through Christmas. Phew.

(Thanks to my dad, a nervous Comcast customer, for the tip.)
