It is usually something said by those who do not know how to use Internet
as a transport in a reliable way between two endpoints.

In your books what is Internet good for ? Torrent and porn ?

>  The internet has convergence times up to multiple minutes.

It does not matter how long does it take to "converge" any single path.

Hint: Consider using multiple disjoined paths and you see that for vast
majority of "Internet failures" the connectivity restoration time would be
very close to your RTT time between your endpoints.
