You can't tell most of the time.

The point that is relevant operationally is that off shoring can be a solid
method to help significantly reduce costs. It can work easier for some
functions than others. Level 1/Tier1 support seems like an excellent
candidate for off shoring and I think that the measure is still quality of
service from the provider verses if they off shore or not.

Just my humble opinion.

Happy Holidays!
