Comcast has reached out to The Pirate Bay and set aside resources in case the BitTorrent site needs it. “I can have our engineers work directly with them to assist,” Jason Livingood told TorrentFreak.

Yesterday Comcast customers were unable to reach The Pirate Bay — many assumed that Comcast was blocking the site. What is really cool is that Comcast not only reached out to The Pirate Bay after hearing about this, but they also did this:

Comcast reached out to Serious Tubes Networks, who deliver transit to The Pirate Bay, and they were able to correct the issue.

Comcast probably doesn’t care for The Pirate Bay and all the BitTorrent traffic that it brings to Comcast pipes, but in this case they really did the right thing. Kudos to them.
