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, has posted Github a traceroute of traffic between Netflix and Comcast that appears to show the two companies have come to some sort of direct interconnection agreement. A source in the industry says that that interpretation is correct, but declined to comment further only saying that it was a recent development. If this is true it marks a detente of sorts in the peering and interconnection battles that Netflix has faced with at least one ISP. the question is who blinked?
