The Pac-10 Networks will have no more Comcast internet and Cox internet in the coming months.
The Pac 10 Networks, which are the main network for the Big Ten conference, have been dealing with Comcast internet problems since they started operations in late 2017.
Comcast is the second largest provider of internet to schools, colleges and universities, according to the FCC, and they are facing lawsuits and public protests over how it has operated.
The network is owned by Charter Communications.
“Comcast’s continued interference in the Pac 10 networks is hurting our students, parents and employees, and is hurting the Pac and our student-athletes,” Pac-13 Commissioner John Swofford said in a statement to the Associated Press.
The networks will remain online through April 28, 2017.
The Pac-11 Networks have been shut down since last year.
Pac-12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said the Pac 12 is “committed to being the leader in innovation and serving our region,” and the Pac 11 Networks will remain in place through April 24, 2018.
In a statement, Comcast said that its efforts to protect our customers from network degradation have not been effective and the network is now in the hands of a third party provider.
“Comcast has been a valued customer of the Pac12 Networks for nearly two decades and we look forward to continuing to provide the best broadband service in the country,” Comcast said.
Cox has been working with the Pac 6 Networks to upgrade their network and they have a similar plan to the Pac 8 Networks.
The company said that Comcast internet would be available through April 14, 2018, and Cox will have access to their internet through April 30, 2018 .
Comcast said that while it continues to support the Pac 13, the Pac 9 and the ACC Networks, they are no longer supporting them.
