Differences in Google Cloud Platform(GCP) Priemium Network Tiers

This is just a test page.

Premium Tier

This tier uses more resources to think out the best route. This tier has more
than 100 Points-of-Presence(PoP) which lets the packets leave Google's network
nearest to the customer. Packets use a more direct route a "cold potato"
algorythm. This Tier support global load balancers.

Standard Tier

Using the "Hot Potato" method, the Standard Tier network tries rid itself of the
packet by sending it to the earliest responding route. This is a less direct
path and may not egrees through a PoP as near to the destination. This Teir can
only support Load Balancers which are regional.
