- A Silicon Valley network traceroute posted on GitHub indicates Netflix (NFLX) and Comcast have reached a direct interconnection (i.e. peering) deal for the former's streaming traffic.
- The discovery follows widespread reports of Comcast subs seeing slow Netflix streaming speeds. Users of other major ISPs have also had speed/quality-of-service issues related to Netflix, which (unlike several other Internet giants) has refused to pay ISPs for peering deals.
- GigaOm sees two possible explanations: Netflix has decided to bite the bullet and pay Comcast in the wake of the FCC's net neutrality ruling, or Comcast is playing nice as it tries to get regulators to sign off on the Time Warner Cable deal.
Network traceroute points to Netlfix/Comcast peering deal
