will only affect pages that deliver the slowest experience to users and will only affect a small percentage of queries.

There are a lot of sites that are irritatingly slow. I strongly doubt that google will demote all of them because there azre just too many.
Testing on a standard connection (3G)...If we're talking Indochina and the Sudan, then I can see how that may be relevant, but over 80% of my visitors are in the USA. Hell, we're putting up 5G towers now.
70% of cellular network connections globally will occur at 3G or slower speeds through 2020.
