Depends on your definition of provider. I'm just saying that there 
appears to be room for another tier of provider in between the local ISP's 
and the national/global NSP's. NAP's and exchange points are popping up 
all over the place these days; it is only a small extension of the 
exchange point concept to a business that provides city-wide backbones 
(or meshes).

It won't work everywhere, but it will work in some places and it will 
help control the growth of routes and that is good.
