A few years back, wireless carriers began flirting with a new idea:
throttling all video by default, then charging you additional money if

throttling all video to 1.5 Mbps, all games to speeds "up to 2 Mbps"
and all music streams to speeds "up to 500 Kbps." Fortunately for you,
you could avoid dealing with this arbitrary restrictions if you were
willing to pay Sprint an additional $25 per month:
