Dumb question. If AT&T knows it will take them 10 days to fix their network, why didn't they start 11 days ago? If AT&T had done that, it would have been finished already. I guess I will never understand the logic used by telephone companies. On the other hand, I don't understand what this gets Excite@Home's creditors. Once AT&T transfers its subscribers to a new network, why does it need @Home's network assets. Over the next 10 days, @Home's value to AT&T drops to zero. Heck, Priori handled their shutdown better.
