Verizon Defends Throttling Plan

Article Comments  24  

Jul 31, 2014, 8:23 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Verizon Wireless today posted a brief response to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler regarding the company's plan to throttle the speeds of unlimited LTE customers. "What we announced last week was a highly targeted and very limited network optimization effort," said Verizon, "only targeting cell sites experiencing high demand. The purpose is to ensure there is capacity for everyone in those limited circumstances, and that high users don't limit capacity for others." The company found itself on the defensive after Wheeler expressed disappointment in Verizon's plans. Wheeler called Verizon's move "disturbing" and "deeply troubling." Verizon said today it will file a more formal response with Wheeler after it has a chance to fully review Wheeler's comments.
