    Instead of charging you $30 for unlimited data, they will charge you $30 for 6 GB per month.

    You'll need lots of patience. You're talking about a government agency.......so it will operate at a glacial pace.

    What he said. Same as your UL data plan. Difference being a subsidized phone and new 2 year comes with it providing your due for an upgrade. Works well for me as I was finally able to get internet at the house so same as UL for me. I was actually kind of surprised how much my data usage went south once I stopped tethering

    EDIT: Another plus, throttling should never be incurred since the max is a dedicated data plan.

    Until they've ended UL data altogether and start tightening the screws on tiered data to squeeze even higher profits out of them.

    Yep. I can see it already. "Oh, sorry, you are not on a "MAX" tiered plan. You will be subject to 'network optimization'."

    As for waiting for the FCC, I hope you folks aren't holding your breath. Just saying.

Anytime and Everywhere is considered congested per the 2011 3G "network management" strategy.

    Therefore, the 4G throttling will make unlimited data plans unusable anywhere and everywhere as well. How they can get away with this considering the upper c band rules is beyond me...

    For a point of comparison, a GSM HSPA+ operator (Viaero Wireless) in Colorado and Nebraska offers 100GB for ~$50 a month ($1 per gigabyte overage fee). They only have 20MHz in the PCS band and can offer those rates. Why can't Verizon? http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...e-data-pricing
    I've been told by a few vzw employees that the 3g throttling is completely different than the 4g network optimization. Basically unless you're in a busy town during a few peak hours it won't be noticeable.

    My hopes are the newer voip phones will be compatible with our unlimited plan. Then a year or two from now their network will be so much better any kind of optimization would be negligible.

    1400 min plan with 2 unltd and 3 feature phones. Only 2 ffs are under contract.*

    I phoned verizon corporate CS. They insisted the phone has to be purchased on or by the 24th not activated and actually you have the full 14 days after receiving your order to make any changes.*

    I'm ordering from best buy tomorrow or Sunday. I have 3 upgrades available. I'm going to use my $50 bb gc (from SD tablet trade in) , get a Galaxy S5 or lg g3 for $49.99, get a free $50 best buy gift card from a previous promo. So minus upgrade fee it's only $30 oop.*

    I will then wait 14 days to see if anything newer is released. If not, sell the phone brand new on eBay or swappa.com. Put the $450-$500 in savings and get the new Droid maxx refresh, moto maxx, or shamu for full retail.*

    There's no point in me not doing this. If the network optimization is that bad I will sell the phone and pay the etf and not be in the hole.*

    I have seen a few documents stating September 13th as the official starting day which makes more sense to me because they need some type of a grace period for customer returns.*

    I had my account remarked accordingly so if I do need to exchange my phone (in case I buy from Verizon due to whatever) I will be in the clear and also had it remarked I wouldn't lose my unlimited plan if my phone arrived after the 24th.*

    They aren't discounting our plans if we pay retail. And there's a significant chance the throttling won't be that bad. Plus we would just lower our plan to 700 mins, keep the feature phones only, and take our smartphone business elsewhere.*

    Am I crazy? Because I do have a 32gb droid maxx with unlocked bootloader and it's a great phone. The only reason I'm upgrading early is because I don't want to add $30 a month data plan until next year.

    print out your complaint, put it in an envelope and stick a 49-cent stamp on it?

    I realize it's 2014, but a hard copy complaint delivered by the post office still carries slightly more weight.

    So if all users will use more data, 5% threshold will go up.

    Keep using data guys.

    I'm afraid they've already looked at usage and established their average. Otherwise I'd gladly do it. I don't want to be pegged as a high data user. Plus I have 105mbps xfinity internet.

    Let's figure out a way to contact verizon, maybe by twitter from multiple people. That way they'll answer the questions.

    Let's start out a list of questions to ask and we can compose a letter. If enough people ask maybe they'll answer. Here are some to start us off:

    1. Is the statement on some users bills with unlimited plans warning them of optimization an indication that being in contract avoids optimization?

    2. Will your top 5% amount of 4.7GB be reevaluated prior to October 1st?

    3. Will unlimited data users be allowed to use this plan with voLTE devices?
