                           COMCAST VIEWS AT&T'S DELAY

              Shareholders Respond To Comcast's Proposal By Adding
                  Over $14 Billion In Market Valuation To AT&T

Philadelphia - July 18, 2001 - Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK) today
announced that it viewed positively the decision by AT&T's (NYSE: T) Board of
Directors to maximize shareholder value by examining strategic alternatives in
addition to its planned initial public offering of its broadband assets. On
July 8, 2001, Comcast made a proposal to merge with AT&T's broadband business
in a tax-free transaction, which valued AT&T's core broadband assets at $58
billion based on Comcast stock's closing price on July 6, 2001, the last
trading day prior to Comcast's proposal.

"We are pleased that AT&T's Board of Directors has responded to the market's
overwhelming endorsement of our proposal by delaying its broadband tracking
stock plan," said Mr. Brian L. Roberts, president of Comcast. "However, we
disagree with the AT&T Board's characterization of our offer as inadequate.
Since our announcement, AT&T shareholders have responded to our proposal by
adding over $14 billion in market valuation to AT&T. As evidenced by the
reaction of their shareholders, the Board's concern about our corporate
governance has no foundation. We think our stock's historical performance
speaks for itself."

Mr. Roberts continued, "We are surprised that AT&T's Board has yet to ask us
for any further information. To that end, we remain prepared to hold immediate
discussions with AT&T regarding our proposal."

Comcast reiterated that it is prepared to acquire AT&T's interests in Time
Warner Entertainment, Cablevision, and Rainbow Media by assuming more debt and
issuing more equity to reflect their agreed upon value.
