VoIP QOS best practices

Qos is designed for dealing with "who gets preference when there's
a bandwidth shortage". Most places are having a bandwidth glut at
the moment, so the VoIP traffic gets through just fine and QoS isn't
able to provide much measurable improvement.

That's certainly true of ISPs, but most VoIP is over bandwidth-starved
private networks.
