what does Tier1 have to do with anything? it JUST might be a good thing to
be able to have a default route to another player if things start
breaking. the other providers are good, but i dont think tier1,2,3 matter
anymore. what should matter is how they are connected and if they will
have latency on any of their links or links to other players.
