04 Jun Verizon Wireless Is Allegedly Throttling Netflix, Even On ‘Unlimited’ Plans
As we all know, ‘unlimited’ doesn’t really mean ‘unlimited’ when it comes to wireless plans. But for Verizon Wireless, it appears ‘unlimited’ has an unusually limited definition when it comes to Netflix and YouTube. Redditors are claiming that, compared to the speed of other sites, Netflix users are being limited to about 10Mbps. It seems to be consistent across the network, and it’s not on Netflix’s end. This isn’t too noticeable, but it’s still contrary to what Verizon claims with their unlimited plans, which do have limits written in. According to Verizon, “If you’ve already used 22GB on a particular line during your current billing cycle and you’re on a cell site that is congested at that moment, your download may be temporarily queued behind other Verizon Wireless customers, which may result in slightly slower download speeds.” For Verizon users, it raises questions, not the least of which is, if they’re paying for an “unlimited” data plan, and Verizon is arbitrarily limiting data from some services, is it doing it to any others?
