Oh, but your relay's spare capacity *is* used.
Just not the way you think.
A congested relay is a slow and unstable relay.
A relay with extra capacity has lower latency, and can deal with
unexpected traffic peaks.
We expect relays to use 30% - 60% of their capacity.
But I think we'd like 10% - 20% for the best latency.
Also, the network is still adjusting after the bandwidth authorities
being down for a few days, and a million extra clients leaving the
network. So it might take a few weeks for bandwidth to balance
