Because not getting a ping back is one thing and not getting to a site is another, but could be related. Devices can be configured to not reply to a ping (or tracert). In addition, you were not very clear on your issue.

Post over in the VZDirect section and they will be able to fix your issue or call VZ.

Whats your DNS source? the www.reddit.com IP isn't correct which points to a faulty DNS lookup

Maybe...but If I set my DNS to 8.8.8.8 (Google) and do an NSLOOKUP multiple times I get different IP addresses (4 to be exact). When I tracert by name it gave me a completely different IP. Regardless, I could not get there by IP but by name I can. Why, probably hostname site hosting. Doesnt allow you to get there by IP, by name only. Imagine thousands of sites hosted behind 1 IP. This is usually done by hosting providers.

I'll try over there next time, I wasn't sure which one to put it in.

Yes, they dont have to reply to ping, however when you can get a full trace through the verizon network for sites that work, and for sites that aren't loading, die after the second hop, that's generally indicative of some sort of network failure.

Given it's akamai, it wont give you the same IP as it's going to give you a geographically local host since you're not in Dallas as well.

If you posted at 3:29AM local time... they typically do network maintenance during this time. Usually have to call the VZ NOC to find someone with clue and figure out if they are doing network maintenance (they don't publish it to subscribers via email). It used to frustrate the heck out of me when I used to work from home overnight.
