It's upsetting that Verizon has decided to make this move. Customers that are now signed up for a plan can keep it, but even for them some conditions will change. Sprint has a $50 promotional plan that includes HD video streaming, but prices go up to $60 after a year.
Verizon's new "Go Unlimited" plan will cost $75 monthly for a single line, down $5, with video streaming slowed to DVD quality. To offset the change, the company added an additional 5 GB mobile hot spot data (now it's 10 GB total) at no additional charge.
Verizon Communications Inc said on Tuesday that it was introducing a cheaper unlimited mobile data plan with some limits as it tries to lure customers away from rival wireless carriers.
The other carriers followed Verizons lead and essentially ended overage chages for data and drove down the price for cellular service. "RootMetrics confirmed it again last month". Subscribers of this plan get free calling, texting, and data in Mexico and Canada. Verizon was testing throttling on Netflix and YouTube earlier this year, and third-party researchers have determined that unlimited plans were slowing down networks. For example, T-Mobile throttled video for some customers.
These changes could help alleviate network congestion, but also sets up a new scheme by which Verizon can drive higher ARPU through tiered levels of wireless pricing.
It's technically unlimited service, but it sure won't feel like that in practice.
But customers who opt for the cheapest option may be disappointed with the video quality.
The FCC allowed similar video throttling systems to continue even under former Chairman Tom Wheeler, who instituted the net neutrality rules in 2015. However, the agency's current chair has announced plans to roll back net neutrality protections.
