Please someone explain Verizon's "backbone augment" Netflix

I just read an article about Netflix's letter to Verizon about congestion and I don't understand what they mean by "Verizon’s unwillingness to augment its access ports to major Internet backbone providers is squarely Verizon’s fault.". It seems like the most important point but I don't understand what it means by augmenting access ports to backbone providers...

dhinged,

You asked a question that leads to a complicated and hard to understand answer. Here is a more complete response, but you may be over your head:

»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_backbone

This stuff gets complicated.
