Thanks.  What concerned me was the first hop...22ms. is ~ the distance

I"m using Hawaiian Telcom's ADSL service and that first hop has always
been their gateway IP address.
Another TCP trace shows the first hop as CN

I'm assuming your provider's network engineers (stupidly) assumed
123.x.x.x was a good idea for use in a private setup because it hadn't
been assigned from the global pool (yet).

Wouldn't be the first provider or service to not use proper RFC assigned
private IP space for their internal networking setup.

Apologies...missed operative word 'internal'.<s>
They are testing IPTV on Oahu in preperation for roll-out, so maybe they renumbered in order to more easily identify the segments.(?)
