De-priortization, NOT throttling

Is Quality of Service the same as throttling?

No. With throttling, when you hit the applicable data threshold, your wireless data speed is reduced for your entire cycle, 100% of the time, no matter where you are. With QoS, your data is de-prioritized only when and where network resources are constrained.Once network resources are no longer constrained or you move to a non-constrained location, your speed will return to normal.

That's true. Some users may get irritated by it but this is just to ensure fairness on other users that are not on unlimited high speed data bucket.

Hypocrisy nevertheless. Sprint can no longer throw stones at T-Mobile. Truly unlimited data was the only thing Sprint had going for themselves. This is tantamount to waiving the white flag of surrender.
