Actually the biggest error in the article is that he didn't notice 
that this nothing more than backbone providers owned by non-telecomm 
companies.  It does improve the connectivity of the network in 
general but architecturally there is no difference.  The fact that 
they might focus on a certain type of traffic is coincidental.
