Excite Reduces Staff by 400


Redwood City, Calif. - Excite@Home Corp. will pare its workforce by 400
workers as it begins a 90-day countdown to ceasing operations.

Excite@Home announced the additional cuts late Friday and
said they were intended to save the company cash as it prepares to shut down
after Feb. 28.

About 900 employees will remain to keep the cable-modem network operating.

But as affiliate cable operators move off the network, the company said,
there will be more employee reductions.
