A document posted on Verizon’s website states that the data speeds of customers who browse through heavy loads of data would be brought down. This move by Verizon is to guarantee all the customers a fair and satisfactory speed on their 3G devices. Verizon has also stated that not many customers of theirs would get affected by this, although the ones who have been using data in large quantities are sure to be penalised. The document states the following-
“If you use an extraordinary amount of data and fall within the top 5 percent 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“.
The document although fails to state what is the threshold data at which it is going to penalise the 5 percent customers.
