Sure they can. What's stopping them? Their cash spends just the same as 
that of any other Comcast customer.

I don't think there's anything in Comcast's or any other ISP's contract 
language requiring customers to affirm that they aren't sitting on large 
blocks of legacy IPv4 space before they'll provide IPs to you.

And, as a practical matter, if some remote AT&T office far from AT&T 
infrastructure needs a /29, how do you propose that Comcast route a /29 
originating in AT&T's 12/8 to that remote facility?

If you haven't signed an LRSA, how is it any of ARIN's business what you 
do with your legacy block?

Arrogant ?@?#?$%s, despite being arrogant ?@?#?$%s, sometimes get their 
facts right.
