Trace route showing MPLS?

Hey guys,

One of my internet routers is showing MPLS packets in the trace.  Is this normal for a pure internet circuit? 

CenturyLinkNET#trace 4.2.2.2

Type escape sequence to abort.

Tracing the route to 4.2.2.2

Re: Trace route showing MPLS?

Most of ISPs are running MPLS in their network, but I'm wondering why your ISP enabled this feature, the default the MPLS network is transparent to the customers.
