impact of "mainstream" versus "extended" support

Reading for the first time, and good article. Was wondering about the basic impacts (cost and performance)of "extended support".

How does a customer activate "extended support"?

Is this determined by the partner?

And does "extended support" impact response times?

Any users of "extended support" care to comment?

Truly appreciate any insight.
