And people wondered why they should keep their old unlimited data and trust Verizon . I still have OG data for $30 not 50 and run it up big time and never gets throttled.

If you ever find yourself wanting to trust Verizon just make sure you remember the abuse

Their network couldn't handle it. They are planning on throttling video streaming down to 480p-720p

Although I've signed up for the unlimited.. I just don't understand why this is happenening.

BTW I have not experienced any throttling after 24GB is used, if that's something hold you back.
However plus line access fees, all taxes and surcharges, it really isn't as cheap as they advertise

This headline is a bit misleading.... The pricing on the Unlimited plans is going DOWN for the base plan. The difference is that Video streaming is now limited to 480p on phones and 720p on tablets on the standard unlimited plan and 720p (phones) / 1080p (tablets) on the Beyond plan.

The "Go" plans are $5 less than the current Unlimited plan on Verizon. The "Beyond" plans are currently $5 more. If you are on an existing unlimited plan, you will get the "Beyond" plan video streaming on your device at the rate you currently pay.

The only "service" that this affects is video streaming, which Verizon will be throttling video at the speed level, not at a resolution level. This means if YouTube is able to buffer 1080p video at 10 Mbps, that is the quality you will get. If it can only do 480p, that is the quality you will get. It's all speed dependent on VZW's system, not compressing video prior to hitting the network. So this is very different from T-Mobile's Binge On that compresses the video prior to sending it to the device.

Either way, unless you are a streamer of 4K video on your commute daily, this really won't affect many users much.

Verizon's slow network can't handle Unlimited, so everybody gets throttled. That's right folks, whether you have a new plan or grandfathered plan, you're getting hit with the throttle hammer. If you're gonna accept throttling there are plenty of cheaper plans. In a matter of 6 months Verizon's rhetoric went from "5GB is enough for most people" to "we have unlimited" to "throttled video is good enough".

Cancel your service, exercise your choice.
