Verizon Wireless Throttling iPhone 4 Data Speed

Posted Feb 3, 2011

According to a leaked PDF from BGR, Verizon Wireless is starting to throttle data speeds of customers that uses an “extraordinary amount of data.” Since Verizon has about 94 million customers, that means 4.7 million customers data speeds will be slowed down.

Verizon Wireless strives to provide customers the best experience when using our network, a shared resource among tens of millions of customers. To help achieve this, if you use an extraordinary amount of data and fall within the top 5% of Verizon Wireless data users we may reduce your data throughput speeds periodically for the remainder of your then current and immediately following billing cycle to ensure high quality network performance for other users at locations and times of peak demand. Our proactive management of the Verizon Wireless network is designed to ensure that the remaining 95% of data customers aren?t negatively affected by the inordinate data consumption of just a few users.
