"same problem" is really not very helpful as a symptom description. ; }

But let's take one of the OP's example problem sites: www.comcast.net

Testing with telnet shows that that host *requires* HTTP 1.1 protocol
(rejects HTTP 1.0 with HTTP 400 response) and will do an immediate
redirect using META Refresh to:

http://www.comcast.net/a/

So with it you might as well request the final destination URL instead.
