Judge Allows [email protected] to Close

A bankruptcy judge said today that [email protected] can shut down tomorrow afternoon, but cable companies that provide the high-speed Internet access are still trying to work out a deal to continue service.

AT&T Broadband, Cox Communications and Comcast Corp. were working on a deal by tonight's midnight deadline to allow service to temporarily continue so [email protected]'s four million subscribers would not be left without their broadband access.

The ruling was a win for [email protected]'s creditors, because AT&T's $307 million buyout offer for the financially-troubled high-speed service would not have been enough to pay [email protected]'s debts.
