My read of that is that there’s an algorithm written for local memory that is executing on network data.  Even on the same local network, there are several orders of magnitude in the latency of those classes.

When I’ve needed to pull huge amounts of data out of tarsnap, I’ve done it from the same AWS Region as tarsnap.  It’s still very slow.  (Or was ages ago when I was testing.)
