I have usually specified 1.5 lbs/cy (which is the minimum) without any adverse affects. Most of the slabs are retail and are 5" thick. If it is an industrial application (warehouse, etc.) I use wire mesh.

Subject: fibermesh rates

We normally have a fibermesh mix of 3.5lbs/CY of 1.5" polyprop. fiberson our standard SOG in lieu of WWF. We have never had a comment before, but now a GC wants to use less "because his concrete company cannot provide that much and can I use less...?."
We are getting this info through the client so we don't know what exactly that means. All the fibermesh specs I have looked at online say 1.5lb/cy MINIMUM.
What do you guys use if you don't mind me asking?
