AT&T Broadband Adds ISP Galaxy


AT&T Broadband has struck another agreement with an independent
Internet-service provider to ride its cable-modem network.

Newton, Mass.-based Galaxy Internet Services Inc. will offer cable-modem
service throughout AT&T Broadband's Massachusetts market, with tentative
plans to start signing on customers in the first quarter of 2003.

No pricing has been set as of yet, but the company hopes to convert a good
portion of its existing dial-up customer base, according to spokesman Bob

Founded in 1995, Galaxy offers dial-up, digital subscriber line, T-1, T-3 and
fixed-wireless Internet access.

AT&T Broadband so far has struck deals in its New England market with
ISPs NET1Plus and EarthLink Inc., and in its Seattle market with EarthLink and
regional ISP Internet Central.
