If you recall... NAP's were tiered...  1,2 etc...

So, you now claim only Tier 1's are actual NAP's ?

(not wanting to send reporters to the 
 phones with yet another mythconception)

  Why don't we take a look at the listings for North America,
from this site.... 

and we can see where I developed this "incredible misnomer"...
Perhaps we will need people to rename their "exchanges", eh ?

Get Bill M's call on it..... Tiering was his Idea.
