Actually AboveNet seems to peer with Comcast:

 5. xe-1-1-0.er2.iad10.above.net                                                            0.0%    53    5.8   6.4   5.7  31.9   3.7
 6. above-comcast.iad10.us.above.net                                                 0.0%    53    6.4   6.4   6.1   6.7   0.1
 7. pos-3-12-0-0-cr01.ashburn.va.ibone.comcast.net                        0.0%    53    6.3   6.4   6.2   6.6   0.1

But Cablevision in New York is in fact another example of this problem:
