Systems and methods for providing differentiated user service options on communications networks are disclosed. Devices can be configured to generate service change requests, and to transmit the service change requests to a network node. The service change request can be routed to a node that determines if the service change request should be granted. The device and network can begin operation in accordance with the service change request almost instantly since no negotiation is required between the device and the network. Methods and computer-readable media embodying methods for providing differentiated user service options, are also disclosed.
