brokentone comments below that they've seen the urls in their production logs. I don't see it in any of mine but I'd be willing to bet that a company writing JS that bad would probably screw up the rest of the process too.

Surely a class action against Comcast is in order here? They're charging everyone for bandwidth they're not using.

That's likely to happen even if Comcast are using DPI to intercept the requests due to users moving between Comcast and other internet connections.

I can confirm that I saw a large number of these urls show up in my logs as well.
