    I think that has always been the key point to this new plan, "if" the towers / network is congested you "may" be throttled. Sounds like no one here has been yet, based on posts. I'm sure someone, somewhere has been throttled on this new plan; just maybe not a member of this forum. I would not base my decision about this plan on any speculation about what Verizon may or may not due in regards to recent articles about customer numbers, and stick to the black & white in the terms.

    Any way you look at it, I'm sure Verizon losing costumers is going to be good for us. They have been cocky & comfortable for too long. I'm still waiting for them to included my corporate discount in the unlimited plan before I make the jump. Maybe now they will.

    My stepson works for CVS and we receive (and pass on to him) a 22% discount off of our $110.00 24GB New Verizon Plan.
    It doesn't apply if we switch our 6 lines to the NVP Unlimited plan either, but if they do begin to allow it, we would probably switch also.
    With our 24GB plan, 5 of 6 lines have the 2GB for life, we usually have 10GB leftover so no big deal if they don't allow the discount in the future.

    Have you considered a cellphone booster?
    Weboost has a couple of models that may help.

    I have many of their mobile boosters. They were previously known as Wilson Electronics. They have a new Eqo home booster. Might work for you? Call them. They might need to know real signal level inside the house and outside the house. Most of their tech is good for a single room.

    How is the new Verizon Unlimited data plan going? I'm thinking of going from the old plan to new Unlimited. Would save about $50/month.

    so far it's been great.. unlimited minutes unlimited data, hit 25gb last month and didn't see a single point where I was throttled except possibly in Disney Land... however I think that was more a too many people for one tower kind of thing.

    Supposedly Disneyland is almost ready to turn on Park WiFi. The WiFi is. Mostly to assist the new Fast Pass system. Fast Pass reservations 2months in advance.

    Yeah,it's mostly because of the amount of people. This always happens to me whenever I attend a baseball game at Dodgers Stadium. When it's a sellout game, around 56k people, it's almost impossible to get even 3g speed. I reckon it's slower than 56k speed. Once I get home though, about a mile away from it, im back to my usual high speed 4g.

    Saying that, I haven't really experienced being throttled despite going over 22gb. I live in the heart of Los Angeles, so im sure im on the same tower as many of the people around me.
