Issues with routes going through XO Communications (xo.net)

Issues with routes going through XO Communications (xo.net)

Apparently, there is still an issue with Comcast and XO Communications.  I have not been able to access a site that Comcast apparently routes through XO.

Tracing route to radiosurvivor.com [208.113.144.94]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

If I try this same tracert from another provider, it works:

Re: Issues with routes going through XO Communications (xo.net)

I can reach the site  ("College Radio Watch: Was WBWC the First Student-Operated Radio Station?"). When one customer cannot reach a site but others can, it usually means something beyond Comcast's network is blocking that customer's public IP. You can look up your IP at https://www.google.com/search?q=IP.

My trace to radiosurvivor.com looks like:

C>tracert -4 radiosurvivor.com

Trace complete.

Comcast may be able to help you with this, but Radio Survivor's webhost might be able to do more.
