Good news for Cox "At Home Internet" customers. They may not have to deal with an interruption in service.
The company said it's reached an agreement with Xcite to keep high speed internet service running until Cox gets its own network operational.
Last Friday, a federal judge cleared the way for bankrupt Excite-At-Home to turn off its high-speed Internet cable network.
About 15 percent of "At-Home" customers nationwide lost their internet access over the weekend.
