I was kind of scared until I noticed you posted an hour ago.

RIP, AT&T@Home.

Excite@Home pulled the plug on AT&T's portion of the network sometime today. Everybody else with @Home can probably still connect.

I'm a bit frightened and bit excited. AT&T is quickly converting current customers to attbi.com...their own infrastructure.

I'm excited about the possibility of maybe having a faster connection and no filtered ports.

I'm worried that it might be not use static IPs or may have all of the above.

Yeah, I'm still on (as of Sunday morning, PST). I kept getting e-mails from Cox @Home (sounds like an amateur porn site) saying what was happening and they have been (and still were) taking steps to make sure there is no interruption in the service.

So far so good.

Once everything is squared away, I too wonder if I'll notice any sort of improvement. Seems like the past several months, this cable modem of mine is not as fast as it was back in the summer and early fall. Pages take a tad longer to load and so forth.

We have a cable modem at work and just about everything is instantaneous. Here at home, there's a bit of a lag, even though there used to not be.

I'm hoping it'll all be dealt with shortly and things are back to 100% speed/performance.

No matter what, it's a gazillion times better than dial-up, if only for the "always on/always connected" aspect. I can't imagine NOT walking by my iMac 67 times a day and easily checking my e-mail, without having to dial-up, connect, check, disconnect, etc.

Ugh!

I got shunted over to Mediacom@Home and apart from their DNS servers going on vacation yesterday morning, the move was transparent.

Given broadband's track record sofar, that's pretty amazing.

*LoL* Amatuer porn site...hadn't thought of it in that light, but you are correct.

Me, I'll be lucky to have an @home account before next summer. Although AT&T is apparently slowing working its way toward my neighborhood this winter (basically one suburb away, but they just started on the other one and are low on budget apparently).
