Oh no, let's :-).
We get over here in Africa as well. Local operators either calling
themselves Tier 1, or being called a Tier 1. Nonsensical.
Years back, our Marketing team asked me to comment on the use of "Tier"
for our literature. You can probably imagine what I said :-).
For me, it's simple - you are present in X cities or Y cities. Tier is
useless because the Internet does not come from a single country or a
single operator. And saying a network is "big" or "small" is subjective
to everyone's perspective, so that doesn't help either.
So you're present here, and present there. That's it.
It's 2020 :-).
