Best part, Speedtest.net is of course excluded from any sort of throttling.

T-Mobile does throttle fast.com, so that's good way to get realistic speeds.

As I read it, content providers have "three choices" as listed.

 

If a content provider doesn't provide Sprint with information, then by default "The Sprint Network will optimize streaming rates utilizing the above respective limits for customers on the Unlimited Freedom Plan."

I guess my question is about how Sprint will know what the data is.  If you're receiving data over a TLS encrypted connection, how does Sprint decide that it's video and should be throttled to 2Mbps or audio and should be throttled to 500kbps or neither and shouldn't be throttled at all?

What if providers don't "work with Sprint to identify respective traffic keys" and just send encrypted data streams?  Since the plans are unlimited won't that mean that people just get unlimited full speed video streaming?
