Just to add some info to Dan's post. The bids(from Cox, Comcast and AOL TW) for AT&T Broadband's service are due in tomorrow(Monday). The board will vote next Saturday(12/8) whether to sell the system to the highest bidder or spin it off into a separate unit of AT&T. From what I've read in the daily trade faxes, Cox's financially-complex bid seems to be the leading one because somehow AT&T will end up with the 50% interest in the Cox's entire broadband unit under the new venture.
