I believe the insults thrown around were totally out of place
regardless of who they are and how many people they help getting
Internet access!

Did you check who they are and what they do btw?

Since they provide the infrastructure that ISPs and telco use and they
are one of if not the largest supplier in the world:

Stating they provide access to billions of people is not too far
fetch, even though, yes it will not be purely in Africa.

We can play with words and numbers as much as we like, but one cannot
deny that their presence is real and their contribution in developing
the infrastructure can be felt wherever they are.

Freely insulting participants (new one at that) to the list is surely
more shocking than erroneous numbers.
