I realise that's what you meant.

My point was that competing, differently-named and 
organisationally-separate suppliers of network services frequently use 
common suppliers for metro fibre, long-haul transport, building access, 
etc. Just because you buy different services from different providers 
doesn't mean there will be no common points of failure.
