Verizon 'Unlimited Data' Users Being Scammed

Verizon ‘Unlimited Data’ Users Being Scammed

Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler sent a letter to Verizon (VZ,Tech30) questioning its plan announced last week to slow down 4G connection speeds for certain customers with unlimited data plans. The news was first reported by Mashable, which posted a copy of the letter online.

Verizon no longer offers unlimited data plans to new customers. But subscribers who signed up for unlimited plans before Verizon ditched them in 2012 can keep those plans — provided they pay full price when they get a new phone. The company said last week that it would occasionally slow the connection speeds of those customers during times of heavy network usage if they fall within the top 5% of data users.

The telecom giant said it would throttle speeds to help manage its network. But Wheeler rejected “network management” as a justification for slowing connections of paying customers. He called Verizon’s actions “disturbing,” suggesting that the company was trying to force people into usage-based plans, in which customers pay per gigabyte.

“‘Reasonable network management’ concerns the technical management of your network; it is not a loophole designed to enhance your revenue streams,” he wrote. “I know of no past commission statement that would treat as ‘reasonable network management’ a decision to slow traffic to a user who has paid, after all, for ‘unlimited’ service.'”
