Providing your sites are local to the same ISP, that would be fine.
Worst case scenario and probably a more likely scenario in most cases
is that company A has a satellite office in Boston, one in Sydney and
one in Tokyo while their head office is in Toronto. Not a very wide
range of providers who can reach those areas, not to mention wether or
not they can deliver MPLS.

differentiate between the proletarian traffic and the uber-business
The other thing to keep in mind is that QoS only comes into play when
you saturate your links.

Subject: VoIP QOS best practices
Looking for some links to case studies or other documentation which
describe implementing VoIP between sites which do not have point to
point links. From what I understand, you can't enforce end-to-end QoS
on a public network, nor over tunnels. I'm wondering if my basic
understanding of this is flawed and in the case that it's not, how is
this dealt with if the ISPs of said sites don't have any QoS policies?
