Mediacom now using Comcast backbone

Found this interesting, Probably doesn't mean anything though Like Mediacom selling to Comcast (Although someone did say that Des Moines might sell out but the City said No)

Something is up I think... Although it isn't all the time as some routing still goes through Des Moines

Looks to me like Des Moines is actually now multi-homed. No longer using only ATT as a backbone provider!

I interpret the examples from IowaMan to mean not that ATT is no longer being used, but for the larger Des Moines market area, that Mediacom has added Comcast as the second backbone connection. Depending on where one is going, their packets may go out through the ATT connection or through the Comcast connection, or may be alternated, depending on the how the routers are configured.

What thread was that? (On a side note, I do miss his presence but understand that in his position and with help from MediacomChad and team, He doesn't need to be here for help anymore as IDK if it was him or his boss but the executive at Mediacom that came up with the idea of a Social Media team a huge THANKS)

It would be nice if MCC were peering with both Comcast and AT&T. Surprised it's been exclusive for so long.

Absolutely! Maybe (maybe) that'd get rid of the 3-4 yearly 'fiber cut' issues we run into that take hours upon hours to resolve!

i just traced google and it went through the att backbone the only site that went through the comcast backbone was comcast's site this would indicate that des moines service is going to be more reliable going off two backbones

Carbondale is still routing through AT&T only.. I tried comcast.com as well as servers in Chicago, Atlanta, and Vegas.

I NEVER had the issues i had with mediacom in western Illinois with comcast. Ever. I would have been glad to switch to comcast when i had mediacom
