Testing from colod boxes on well behaved networks (otherwise they would
not know or be part of the RING), while the problem lies with actual
home users is quite a difference.

Also the statement "universally broken" comes from you.

As Google has admitted "fixing" it, you have been proven wrong.

Sorry, no cigar.

Actually, I wonder why you are trying to fight so hard that various
people have reported this problem. You are apparently not working for
either Google or Akamai, you are not an access network, your network is
not involved either; hence... what is your problem with such a statement?
