LTE is reducing user reliance on Wi-Fi

Not here. It's too damn expensive if you go over your cap.

and rightly so. The cap and overages are there so the network actually works. If they still offered unlimited data for $30 a month over 4G everyone would be bitching about how their connection is either slow to non existent. Wireless data doesn't work by magic. Wireless spectrum and bandwidth are shared and limited resources.

I'd like proof on that. They've said that over, and over, and over again.. but I really don't believe it. If they throttled, sure.. but not charge more for overages.
