    My phone constantly can't get to internet if there is a big crowd around like a city . Verizon wants me to pay an extra $10 a month to go to the next tired plan that doesn't throttle. This never used to happen. My even older plan used to not throttle tills 26gb but my current budget everything plan throttles at 1st gb if in a city or a concert or a crowd

    The way it's being discussed on Reddit, it isn't throttled, but deprioritized, meaning that the basic unlimited plans that don't include a supply of "premium data" get placed behind those who do have some premium data.
    So you can get full speed data depending on the tower, or you may get crap.

    We're currently on an older 24Gb plan for $110/month, split between 6 users.
    Plus, 5 of the users have a bonus 2Gb/month for life, so we start with 34Gb/month.
    It is not deprioritized data.
