Monday, July 9, 2001

Dear Comcaster:

As you may have seen in today's newspapers, Comcast has made an offer to
purchase the broadband assets owned by AT&T Broadband.

The combination of Comcast and AT&T Broadband would create the premier broadband
provider in the country, serving approximately 22 million customers. We believe
this transaction makes a great deal of sense for the employees and shareholders
of both companies. With our industry-leading management we could accelerate our
goal of rolling out new products, while delivering quality service and being the
company that people turn to first for entertainment and information.

At this point, there is no guarantee that this combination will occur. For
information on what is happening and to stay abreast of developments please
check and watch for notices of future updates.

It goes without saying that we would not be in a position to take this step
without the dedication and hard work of every Comcaster. We thank you for your
past, present and future commitment to making Comcast the finest broadband
company in the country.


/s/ Brian L. Roberts                        /s/ Stephen B. Burke
