Brighthouse - Florida - List of IP Blocks

From time to time I look for a list of local Brighthouse IP addresses - usually for whitelist building.
I've never had luck in finding one. So, I figured I'd try to put one together.

Here's what I found. Any corrections would be most welcome.

I cobbled together netblock (209.16.112.0/17) and range (209.16.112.0-209.16.127.255) for formatting.
So, it can't be used without some editing, but it helps in translating.
I didn't compute the mask for MS IPSEC. Sorry.

List is Tampa-Centric.
I tried to include CFL.
I noted what look to be Earthlink and Mindspring addys for TPA/CFL.
A lot of addys under 24.x.x.x are in the se.biz.rr.com domain.

I was working off a single Brighthouse AS record. I'll cross-check some others later tonight and see how complete this might be.

Thanks for any input. Hopefully someone else can use it.

Don't be so scarce... I'm sure there is something we can create a lively debate over

Yes, well..... I'm pretty firm about situations that I've thought through.
I didn't want that to detract from the good that was being done here.

Past all that:
I thoroughly beat up my BH Lightning connection. I host a friends mail server at home and turn away close to 50k spam attempts each day (for 10 email accounts!).
I also host most of a million documents over RDP and have a couple of VoIP lines.

I tightly manage it all with a Very Good QoS router and none of the services are degraded. With lesser equipment, it'd be a nightmare.

The lesson is - if you tax your internet connection (like with bittorrent) and your Browsing or VoIP sucks - make sure your router is up to the job before you blame your ISP.

BTW: I use this list regularly. I have customers who have BH for their home service. I whitelist incoming BH connections at their office. That makes the rest of the planet blacklisted by default. It's a very simple, very secure solution.

Now I need to compile a Verizon-FL list. I suspect that's going to be much more difficult.

You would be blocking those Verizon IP's right

You are never a distraction from the good....just a nice diversion from the less technical. As for the router and p2p people just don't understand how important a good powerpacked router is. If you must skimp on something let it not be your router. Todays applications place demands on residential routers that rival some businesses. It's not uncommon for the average home to be engaged in thousands of active tcp sessions in any given moment....especially if they are active torrent freaks. Many times people will exceed the capacity of their router and instead of throwing a "hey I'm about to implode here...back off a bit" error the router chokes and the symptoms will mimic common connection issues. Of course you know who they blame then

Yes I do. Along with that will come accusations of caps and network throttling.

I'll be the first to say that BH is one the diminishing number of ISPs that does NOT cap or throttle.

Anyone can take that to the bank. If BH were to ever change policy, I'd know it and would be here w/ the evidence.

I live on a FiOS street and remain w/ BH.
Even though the BH road has occasionally been rocky; when I pressed the matter home I've always had my expectations met.

I retain a measure of respect for BH that I don't hold for many service providers.
