I'm all for this because I've experienced 0.6 Mbps on an LTE site because of data abusers and it made my experience with Sprint poor.

This is kind of what I am talking about. For a tower to actually be congested you have to have a fairly high populated area. If you are in a major city, sure a tower MIGHT be congested (and thats a big maybe). But most often in those situations the network is deployed with multiple towers. Think NYC or Chicago for example. Three towers might serve 1 square mile. However the vast majority of us dont live in areas like that. I have 3 towers within 3-4 miles of my home. It only serves a population of maybe 6,000 people. Now how many of those are sprint users? 10% Thats hardly congestion. Even at 50% the network would be fine. I bet I and my gf both get throttled 24/7 at home, and away from home and I am hardly in the top 5%.
There is no way in heck that this is going to be limited to the top 5% of users on congested towers.
We all need to stop repeating the spoon fed garbage these carriers feed us and get a bit more edcuated on how data really works. Its not what you believe it be. Tower congestion is a subjective issue. Sprint can simply just say it is. Where is the verification?
Aye there's the rub!
