said by Karl Bode:

Does this new agreement technically involve having Comcast now hosting Netflix Open Connect CDN gear?

This is an interconnection agreement.

This is an interconnection agreement.

Meaning no, the OC device is not located within the Comcast network, only connected with Netflix data streams via the same data transit center? Can you tell us how this agreement is different from using a Netflix Open Connect system?

The bottom line question being does this agreement provide Comcast subs with OC-quality streaming or is a "better than it was but not as good as it could be" solution?
