I'm surprised as well that they are not either using the standard IP ToS (Type of Service) flags that VOIP services use for QoS purposes already, or at least making sure their own VOIP traffic get some kind of priority.

I suppose ISPs could be stripping these flags off as they pass traffic through, if VOIP traffic was not flagged as it came into Windstream's network I could see their equipment not prioritizing VOIP over other traffic.
