Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from @Security Broadband Corp.

    AUSTIN, Texas, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Austin, Texas-based @Security
 Broadband Corp. announced today that it has received $45 million in additional
 funding.  The latest round is a result of growing investor confidence in
 @Security's broadband home security product and the success of the company's
 ongoing technology trial.  Funding will support the continued development of
 @Security's technology and the preparation for a consumer product launch.
     "The level of funding and caliber of investors speak to the potential our
 product has in the market.  Not only have we secured a significant amount of
 funding, we have done so at a time when investors have been hesitant to show
 this level of confidence in a young company," said @Security President and CEO
 William Glasgow.  "The positive results we have received to date from the
 technology trial have reconfirmed to our investors and partners that they are
 investing in a winning strategy."
     Investors include Adelphia Communications, Charter Communications,
 Comcast, Cox Communications, Shaw Communications, Cablevision Systems, Rogers
 Communications, Catalyst Investors, Advance-Newhouse, Coditel, BMO Halyard
 Capital Fund, Greenspun Family, CIT, and Prime New Ventures.
     "Adelphia is looking forward to testing the service as an up-sell to our
 existing security customer base.  We have always believed security would be an
 addition to our bundle, and the technology has finally evolved to allow us to
 offer an interactive service," said Tim Rigas, Executive Vice President,
 Adelphia Communications.
     @Security partner Cox Communications is assisting with the technology
 trial and is gauging the impact of this product on the industry.
     "The results we have seen from the technology trial further indicate that
 @Security's product should have a positive impact on the cable industry," said
 Cox Director of Business Development Jeff Brown.  "We recognize the potential
 consumer interest in this new service, and we're attracted to how it can
 broaden our range of products and services."
     Investor confidence continues to grow as @Security proves the
 functionality of its product.
     "Catalyst Investors seeks out companies that have exceptional management
 teams and the potential to become a leader in their industry," said Catalyst
 Investors Managing Partner Brian Rich.  "We are encouraged by the results of
 @Security's technology trial and believe that the timing is right for the
 company and this kind of product."
     @Security's product leverages cable's broadband capabilities to offer
 consumers an affordable home security system with real-time audio and video
 alarm verification, 24-hour monitoring and a Web site with remote system
 access features and security-focused content.  The audio and video
 capabilities also give consumers access to their home when they are out of
 town or at work -- providing family interaction and peace of mind in ways
 never before possible.
     "In addition to being an attractive product for consumers," said @Security
 Chairman Jerry Lindauer, "this product offers our cable partners the
 opportunity to use their established infrastructure to generate an incremental
 revenue stream that does not dilute current service offerings."
