I had hoped it wouldn't come to this, but I will soon be enforcing bandwidth throttling on my children's internet connections.

In defending the move to my kids, I've pointed out that there is a precedent for this sort of trickle-down enforcement policy.

I wonder if this is more of a case of over-sold capacity. If carriers oversold their capacity to gain market-share, who should pay the costs? Certainly not the customer.

To position this as a matter of fairness is attempting to blame the customers for the carrier's success in overselling capacity at an unsustainable price.

It almost seems as if the telecom community is taking business strategy lessons from the airlines.
