DirecTV Broadband Extends Offer


DirecTV Broadband Inc. said Tuesday that it would extend its discounted
digital-subscriber-line offer to existing cable-modem customers through the end
of March.

Under the promotion, current cable-broadband customers are eligible for two
free months of DirecTV DSL, plus free installation.

Cable-modem customers across the country have experienced electronic-mail
delays and outages recently as former Excite@Home Corp. providers made the switch to
their own networks.

DirecTV Broadband has set up a Web site,, where
cable-modem customers can check to see whether the DSL service is available in
their neighborhoods.
