Ideally the payload should be encrypted!
Any form of priority flags and Oos and steamID should be publicly readable, so that routes and switches
Can deal with buffer bloat at the data frame level.

Well with out quality of service, you subject to router packet inspection, and congestion and re-transmission
Rules that are custom to that router. Any isp can shape traffic how they like, so Qos, just way to improve the a realtime reverse pipe
Across network segments, to ensure the use has the correct realtime experience.
So to just claim the Qos effects it, is not correct, there so many other external factors that would affect it.

Kind Regards,

Wesley Oliver
