Google and Akamai are just two examples of companies with hundreds
of thousands of machines where they move large amounts of data
between them and have control of both ends.  Many corporations are
now moving off-site backup data over the Internet, in large volumes
between two end points they control.

The Internet is not just web servers feeding dial-up clients.
