GSM security testing: where the action is

On the wide Internet it's probably not going to make much difference, anyway. Voice traffic is fairly narrow-band, even high-quality codecs do not require more than 64Kbit.

Narrow band does not grant immunity from occasional packet loss and high latencies. Only QoS helps in such cases.

Quite often voice and data backbones also use separate circuits, so QoS is not used even there.

This is actually some simple, manual, very coarse form of QoS when you think about it. Simple => works.
