You are mistaken here: having the same ISP may help with latency, or it
may not.  Having the same VSP may help, or it may not.

In other words: "the same ISP" is at too coarse a resolution to tell you
anything useful.  It doesn't hurt, but you can't be sure it helps.

Oh, and part of that comes down to the VSP and the configuration of the
VoIP devices at each office, also.
