Not surprised to read this, probably Sprint is pushing them so they can make room for LTE

Nope, throttling Virgin Mobile subs is in no way related to Sprint deploying LTE, as EV-DO and LTE will operate in separate spectrum. Sprint is not taking away bandwidth from EV-DO to "make room for LTE."

The most likely reason for throttling is that a few subs (3 percent) are using far more than their fair share of data, thereby causing increased network congestion and slower data speeds for other subs.
