"Core"? Seriously? Which of these statements are true: A) Is it impossible for an end user or business (i.e. 
non-ISP) to get a direct connection to a "Tier 1" (whatever the hell that means) provider. B) Most traffic on the 
Internet traverses Tier 1s today. C) A Tier 1 has a different profit motive than a Tier 2 (whatever the hell that 
means) providers. D) All Tier 1 providers are larger than all Tier 2 providers. We'll just skip over the E) all of 
the above.

agree - I oversimplified, but I think you got the idea ...

No, I did not get the point. 

I am not trolling. I just do not understand what you meant. Probably because there is no "core", so your statement did 
not make sense.
