Richard, heres a CBS Marketwatch bit:



The companies also haven't fully explained how the joint venture will

treat high-speed Internet services. AT&T, after its acquisition of TCI,

will control At Home (ATHM), a provider of cable Internet service, while

Time Warner is funding a competitor, called Road Runner.



"Each cable operator in this country has retained, and will retain, his

prerogative on the data-services activity. We had no conversations as

part of this joint venture about At Home orRoadrunner," said TCI

executive Leo Hindery, who'll head AT&T's cable services.



Initially, Roadrunner will be offered in Time Warner systems, and At

Home in TCI and affiliate systems, executives said during a news

conference. "I don't see a conflict between the two services," Levin

said.



Above sounds positive for ATHM, as I read it, but would appreciate comments
