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

erm...

...Resource Blocks occupy 180kHz of bandwidth (12 subcarriers with a spacing of 15kHz per subcarrier)...

...and normal LTE resource allocation takes place by assigning one or more RBs to each active user on a subframe by subframe basis...

...so if that's how 'normal' LTE resource allocation works I'm not sure I really understand what's new or different about the feature that Ericsson has announced? Or maybe I'm missing something...? unless what they're saying is that higher priority users are allocated RBs that have the best reported quality and that can therefore carry the highest data rates in that cell - so it's a kind of 'radio quality-based' prioritisation scheme?
