I, Cringely has this incisive

  • I, Cringely has this incisive analysis of the problems facing Excite @Home cablemodem broadband Internet service, as the company stands perched on the brink of bankruptcy. After delving into some of the internal company politics that hampered the company, Cringely nonetheless reaches the conclusion that “Excite@Home failed mainly because broadband did not grow as quickly as expected. Broadband is not, at this time, a viable industry.”

    I have an @Home cable modem and would be hard pressed to give it up. It makes all my Internet usage much easier and helps integrate the Internet as a basic part of my life, just like any other utility. I hope it sticks around… for my sake, not AT&T or Excite.
