I think all pricing is under NDA for the direct connectivity... we have it, and I know it is under NDA for us...
Comcast is in the becoming a tier1 game in a big way so avoiding people who don't already peer with the is probably a plus if you want great connectivity to them. The AS paths I would avoid are _3356_7922_ (usually fine, but subject to the fight de jour between level3 and Comcast) and anything on _6453_7911_ (subject to being saturated all the time). Last I checked AS2914 and a few others still only see Comcast via 6453 which made that sub-optimal.
I can send you a AS7922 sales contact if you need it, just hit me up off list... they also have a good list of info on peeringdb for people to contact.

Does anyone have sample pricing for Comcast's Paid Peering (http://www.comcast.com/dedicatedinternet/) service they'd be able to share?
Also, are there any transit ISPs to avoid when reaching Comcast? I remember discussion last winter about Tata being congested, and would like to understand how common these issues are. I'm preparing to launch a large video broadcast for the state, so any advice would be appreciated.
