    Verizon is canceling plans to move forward with Network Optimization of unlimited data customers.This means, Verizon is not going to slow down the data connection of customers with unlimited data plans who fall in the top 5% of the carrier’s data users.
    The statement From Verizon.

    For those that still have Unlimited Data with Verizon This should bring some relief.

    Suddenly change their minds, I bet they must have something more evil up their sleeves than throttling unlimited users....

    I wouldn't be surprised if they came out with strict new rules for no-contract unlimited customers.
    EXample: A Late payment and your are turned off permanently.

    Then again, maybe Big Red had a true change of heart! :rolleyes:

    Or they were afraid of the bad press they were about to get?
    Still... pretty cool. Honestly one of the things still keeping my wife on VZW is her unlimited data and "cheap" plan.
