    It says this but I have yet to see it. I can still stream content at 720P and 1080P from my video streaming apps on my cell phone on Verizon Prepaid.

    Interesting, I can turn Streamsaver on or off on my account easy, through the app or online

    ALL cellular service providers are evil and cannot be trusted. There are no good guys in this business like the magenta guy wants you too believe. The bottom line is shareholder profits. Don't ever forget that!

    That's true and profits are the name of the game. I do think TMobile is the lesser evil out of the bunch but that came about due to it being their selling point to be different

    That is rapidly changing as evident by their recent price increases. How can you call yourself the good guy when your prices are the same for a lesser service.

    Well I think TMobile jumped on the price change too soon but they are doing a lot of upgrades so it's not a surprise

    Okay but Stream Saver is enabled by default...

    (https://www.att.com/offers/streamsaver.html).

    Read here:



    As where Verizon has no known "policy" of throttling their video on postpaid lines.

    Regardless, your reply has nothing to do with AT&T throttling "general usage", which they don't do.

    iPhone 7 - Carrier Aggregation Band 4 10 MHz PCC + Band 2 10 MHz SCC1 + Band 12 5 MHz SCC2

    Verizon Is Throttling Netflix?

    The video throttle is now live for me in the Chicago market on my phone:


    With VPN:




    Meanwhile no throttle on my tablet line (yet):


    A friend that works in Gary is not seeing a throttle on his phone either. Not sure why that is.:


    YouTube plays up to 720p 60fps no problem but scrubbing is slow now. 1080p plays fine but 1080p 60fps chokes. Netflix plays ok (with the quality set to Unlimited), again scrubbing is slow now. Hulu barely plays when set to High quality, with slow scrubbing. With the VPN on everything loads up just a bit faster, scrubbing is near instantaneous, and any quality plays without issue on YT.

    With that said, thanks Verizon for making the experience on your network lower quality while continuing to charge a premium! I'll be sure to tell everyone about it.

    Yeah. Just tell him to start using VPN. A free one is called VPN360, and it’s fast at a reasonable speed (up to 50-60 Mbps).

    Also, most video services like YouTube will work, but Netflix won’t.

    Definitely usable for 1080p videos with good buffering.
