Speed Capping on Verizon Data

Verizon is now speed capping download speed for 28 day to 200k on any unlimited account that exceeds 5gig... per Fraud and Investigations.

 

Sprint offers unlimited data for anyone in their 4G network coverage area!!!!! And Vergin Mobile is still unlimited month to month.

 

Just letting you know your options! Since the guy Marcus in Fraud and investigation told me "...that (sprint) is a better option for you."

Verizon no longer offers unlimited data on computer devices. They now offer 5 GB and 10 GB plans for computer devices. There are still some old plans left out there, but most customers have switched over to one of the current plans as they update their devices. The problem with switching to one of their competitors is their networks don't offer near the coverage as Verizon. So, make sure you look carefully at your coverage before you switch.

Good Response Jim. Everyone should make sure you are in a coverage area before you switch..... (maps lie)

Don't  you think an Unlimited long term customer should fall under the same rules and services as a 10Gig customer?

Do you feel that these unlimted customers are just cheating Verizon by not upgrading their equipment (added cost to Verizon) and not signing 2 year contracts (locking them into Verizon for two more years) thus allowing them to just  use up all the precious bandwidth for only 60 bucks a month?

 

If you are a fixed base operation remember that there are antenna options that make almost any network a viable operation. If you are a rural customer, as I am, do some research... (they are building twoers as we speak) don't just remain a "loyal customer" to a conglomerate that has no loyalty to its customers.

The Unlimited customers helped build the current data network you have now! Our testing and feedback helped develop and improve this network.

It is sad that I have to go back to friends and family in my area and report that if they want real (current faster more useage) data networking, then what I have told them is no longer true, and they should look to another carrier besides Verizon.

 

Yep... 30 foot tower, home made dish antenna, 720 modem and I was glad to get 100Kb speed at one time... those days are gone... bring on the 4G!!!!!!
