Comcast and Netflix appear to have resolved their differences over network peering, which has frustrated many Netflix users over the last few months with slow, intermittent service as a result of the dispute over the business of interconnecting networks.
Bryan Berg, a co-founder of App.net, posted a traceroute on Github showing traffic data between Netflix and Comcast that appears to show the two companies have come to some sort of direct interconnection agreement. Multiple sources in the industry say that interpretation is correct, but declined to comment further. One source noted that it was a recent development. The two firms are peering in the Equinix San Jose data center, based on the traceroute.
