3Com plans to drop the US Robotics brand name when the two companies merge later this year. Eric Benhamou, 3Com?s chief executive, argues that the term Sportster, in USR's Sportster modems, is recognisable and has more market value than USR?s own name. When the merger was first announced two months ago, the companies pledged to retain both brand names.
