It has absolutely nothing to do with fiber.

As of this exact moment that I'm posting, that article is actually
reasonably accurate. Of course I'm sure in 5 minutes 100 people will be
updating it to include their favorite not-really-a-tier-1 carrier. :)

Someone added Cogent as a Tier 1, and there are others missing so I'd
ignore the "who" is a tier 1 portion.
