Hello all,
Using less bandwidth per user won't necessarily make the network
"faster" for the individual user. There is already a surplus of
bandwidth available, as seen here:

FWIW, I use an adblocking plugin on my TBB because it is how I prefer
to view webpages. I'm aware of why it cannot be included by default,
as others have stated.
