Hah, just a few days ago I spoke with an "engineer" at VZ that tried to
claim that each of the treatments were different, but that they only
charged extra for EF. I asked why I shouldn't just put all my traffic in
the highest "free" treatment and beat out all the other customers for the
best treatment for mine. He told me that "most of his customers weren't
trying to get their traffic through at the expense of other customers".
Anyway, despite what their "engineers" say, only EF is actually treated on
the VZ network better than BE, the rest are just to prioritize traffic at
your own egress port.
