usually i am careful to check using netstat -n and tracert to make sure that it is coming off Xnet server and not externally and it was. Whats worse first time it came corrupt and so i downloaded it twice, almost a gig gone. Oh well.

Here is the link I used if anyones interested: http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/svpk/2008/04/windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu_c81472f7eeea2eca421e116cd4c03e2300ebfde4.exe


Yes it resolves to 58.28.25.10 I did verify with netstat during the download.

C:\Documents and Settings\user>ping download.windowsupdate.com

Pinging a26.ms.akamai.net [58.28.25.10] with 32 bytes of data:

Could it be a bug in the usage meter? Usually when it comes off here it is shown up as local.

I think this may have happened to me too with a demo from the Playstation Network. Luckily it was only about 500MB.
Unfortunately I wasn't watching the download to see where it was coming from. But usually it all comes from the Xnet Akamai servers.

It seems that any content from the Xnet Akamai servers is counting as National for me. It was all Local before. Something has gone wrong..

Oh well atleast I am not alone here.  I am 100% sure its not some other traffic or something.  Usually I barely hit 1GB national in the whole month and I did it it one day. 

Looks like VFX is the only local traffic now.  Yell

It's still counting as national. Is this going to be corrected? Any comment from Xnet?

I've passed this issue to the Operations team for investigation.

Operations have advised me any traffic passing through this should now be local - awaiting confirmation of issue.  If you'd like to test something to confirm that would be great.
