Short Take: AT&T WorldNet sign-ups rise

AT&T claims to be experiencing a sharp spike in sign-ups for its WorldNet Internet service, an increase it attributes in part to an influx of refugees from America Online. An AT&T spokeswoman said WorldNet sign-ups doubled in January from the previous month. A poll of more than 1,000 new subscribers showed than one-third had recently left AOL because of service problems with the online service.
