Yes, definitely NDA in any of our dealings... I'd say the pricing was
"competitive" for sure...

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

Does anyone have sample pricing for Comcast's Paid Peering
( 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.

Thank you,
