Prior to that, Singh served as CFO at Clearwell Systems and Warranty Corporation of America and in key executive roles at Trimble Navigation, Excite@Home
, 3Com, and Ernst & Young LLP.
He has also served in CFO positions at Excite@Home
, Sybase, Cypress Semiconductor and VLSI Technology.
He has also had finance positions at Excite@Home
, Mars Inc., Intel Corp., and Nissan Motor Corp.
Having an affiliated ISP proved to be of little value, as demonstrated by the case of Excite@Home
, the affiliated ISP of broadband cable network owners AT&T, Comcast, and Cox.
But when Excite@Home
went out of business last year, reporters at News.com found themselves covering a deadline story about more than technology -- it was about the complex and confusing relationship between @Home and its owner, AT&T.
It has not been an easy road, especially the last five years, which proved investment in Internet properties, including Excite@Home
, to be costly mistakes.
(Of course, AT&T doesn't always compete successfully, as demonstrated by its huge stake in the floundering cable-modem system Excite@Home
, which has been teetering on the verge of bankruptcy for most of this year.)

THE British arm of Excite has been left stranded after the US parent company Excite@home
TELECOMWORLDWIRE-1 October 2001-AT&T to purchase Excite@Home
's broadband access business (C)1994-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com
The latest shock was an announcement that Excite@Home
, the largest provider of high-speed cable Internet access in the country, was in danger of going out of business.
Favorite Deal: "Starting up VLSI -- creating a real company from a business plan was a fantastic opportunity -- and then virtually doing the same thing initially with @Home, which became Excite@Home
, as we helped create broadband Internet and were early in the gestation of the Internet industry.
