I have no idea where Comcast has its headend for Cambridge anymore.
(used to be Arlington)

I do know that cable networks like NBCSN and NHL Net are feeding by
fiber to Comcast to work around blackouts during the playoffs.

What I have noticed is that in the past 6 months Comcast local
inserted ads are now more regional than city specific. I used to get
Skenderian Apothecary ads all the time but they vanished at the start
of 2013.
