Although Metromedia Fiber Network lost AT&T this week, the bankrupt metro area network provider said it is still delivering uninterrupted service to its customers with no intention of shutting down.Metromedia Fiber Network Inc. lost one of its largest hosting customers to AT&T Corp. this week, but company officials said that the bankrupt metro area network provider is still delivering uninterrupted service to its customers with no intention of shutting down. The Web sites of CNET Networks Inc. will be dark July 5 through July 7 as the company moves its servers to a data center operated by AT&T, CNET said in a press release today. CNET said that the move from one hosting provider to another was required, but a spokeswoman for MFN said that is not the case.
"We are migrating customers who choose to stay with us to our San Jose facilities," said Kara Carbone, spokeswoman for MFN. "The San Jose facilities are solid, and our customers havent had any service interruption at all."
