Concerning the two services, the wiki states:
> DigitalGlobe-Premium is a mosaic composed of DigitalGlobe basemap with select regions [ specify ] filled with +Vivid or custom area of interest imagery, 50cm resolution or better, and refreshed more frequently with ongoing updates
> DigitalGlobe-Standard is a curated set of imagery covering 86% of the earth's landmass, with 30-60cm or resolution where available, backfilled by Landsat. Average age is 2.31 years, with some areas [ specify ] updated 2x year.
