Don't call it throttling: Ericsson 'priority' tech gives users their own slice of spectrum

Could this be used to prioritize emergency calls on congested networks? I'm thinking large scale emergencies where everybody jumps on at once.

Something like user dials emergency number*, base station ensures bandwidth for the call by limiting the speed of data connections and people connected to non-emergency numbers (i.e. reporting they're OK to family.)

* Assuming there is enough bandwidth to initiate the call.
