Verizon Wireless has revealed that it will soon be throttling a limited number of customers that are currently on an unlimited data plan through an effort known as "Network Optimization." Customers of the wireless carrier will be limited in terms of their data connection speeds only if certain criteria are met, which helps reduce the total number of people that will experience data speed reductions. This criteria includes being within the top five percent of data users, being enrolled in an unlimited data plan or feature, having fulfilled the minimum contract term, and attempting to use data on a cell site that is experiencing high demand.

Verizon Wireless customers who are apart of other tiered data plans are not affected.

hasn't Verizon been throttling for a long time already?
