The most common reason is related to the diurnal cycle. When everyone's asleep, only the backup tool is running.

The one after that is that bandwidth is generally purchased (for money) in fixed increments. If I need N bps and my options are M and P, where M < N < P, I either accept being congested some percentage of the time and go with the lower value, or increase to the upper one. In the latter case, I never use P-N.
