In the wake of yesterday's ruling in the Excite@Home bankruptcy saga, TR readers are reporting that the cable companies have pulled the plug in their areas. The death of @Home's network could strand up to 45% of the nation's cable modem users without service, according to at least one report I read.
Not only that, but apparently the "backup dial-up option" cable companies are recommending is NetZero. There's no better way to use a dial-up pipe than flooding it with additional advertising, eh?
This is absolutely insane.
