Miner source: SegWit to happen before September

A great news is just awaiting for all Bitcoin lovers including me. As I'm currently holding over 1K BTC, everyday mempool lagging depresses me about Bitcoin's success & gives me tension a lot. Bitcoin has a very bright future which is now being spoiled by its own popularity. Everyday thousands of transactions are being unconfirmed for almost over 72 hours. Yes, block scaling issue is the great problem for Bitcoin's success of all the time.
Today I just found the news on Cointelegraph & feel excited --

Bitcoin Miners Agree in NY on SegWit Activation "Before September": Sources

Yesterday, on May 21 all major Bitcoin miners have arranged a meeting where they have reached an  agreement to go for SegWit activation. This meeting was held in the city of New York. It's an undoubtedly a very good start to the important Consensus conference that united important  movers and shakers of the crypto industry. 
Currently blocks supported by major miners are shown as below on coindance --
SegWit : 34%
Bitcoin Unlimited : 40%
And Nodes run on --
Bitcoin Core (SegWit) : 85%
Bitcoin Unlimited : 9%

Global Bitcoin Political Support & Public Opinion

SegWit : 86%
Bitcoin Unlimited : 26%
It's clear that majority of the Bitcoin users, supporters & investors want to activate SegWit, but, some big Chinese miners i.e. Antpool, ViaBTC, BTC.top, Canoe, GBMiners etc. are against SegWit.
Recently, Litecoin successfully activated SegWit & price has risen from $4 to $30. So, if SegWit activated on Bitcoin then not only the transactions will be faster confirmed but also price will get a big jump.
And, as the other alternative option Bitcoin Unlimited is buggy and is not safe to run Bitcoin network on it, we only have one option SegWit Activation.
According to  Charlie Shrem’s messages  in the Whalepoolbtc Telegram chat -
“When I have all the details I will tell you, it's still  all being processed,” Shrem wrote, adding that he was “bullish” and  confirming the news was to do with SegWit. 
I think these two message state that there was “big news” coming from the Consensus conference.
Shrem’s optimism relates to a group of Bitcoin businesses, which  together with at least Jihan Wu and Barry Silbert, allegedly agreed to  enable SegWit “in September 2017.” 
According to entrepreneur Alistair Milne, a meeting organized by Silbert  at Consensus produced what “may conclude the Bitcoin scaling debate  (for now).” 
A news from an anonymous source is that "SegWit activation will occur before that date".  Core developer Luke-jr  has already confirmed that the implementation date would in September this year.
