    Speed after 22gb is abysmal in saturated areas

    Let me add something for ya, enjoy your 2 GB when 5G arrives. You don't deserve unlimited for saying stuff like that. Network capacity is NOT an issue at this point. With Gbit LTE coming, LAA is also coming, and 5G is right there. Why should anyone use less than unlimited data plan? I think you love that psychological fear of overages, or definitive throttling.

    Users of unlimited data should consider how they are effecting the network for us users that don't have unlimited data. Unlimited data will capsize the Verizon network.

    It really isn't the consumers job to manage the Verizon network though, that's Verizon's job.

    IMHO deprioritization is the way to go. Sure the network is slower but that's because people can use it now where they couldn't afford to before I can't see that as a bad thing.

    !!!! Shouldn't blame the consumer for the company's failure to deliver. If you advertise unlimited data users should be able to use as much as they want. Hence the term unlimited...

    Double edged sword, the carrier is blamed for either not enforcing and/or if doesn't do enough.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame

    Topic needs updating:
    Speed before 22gb is abysmal in saturated areas.

    I used to be a "power user" on the gUDP....but the new udp has been worthless. It was amazing...the day I switched, things were spectacular until I went back outside.

    Been a crawl ever since. Last few months I haven't broken 4gb because mobile data is now so annoying. It's as if I'm depri 100% of the time with no exit.

    That's asinine to ask fellow customers with unlimited data plans to cut back if they are paying for unlimited data as per their plan? They don't have to consider anything, they are paying more money for unlimited data each month. It's the carrier themselves that should A: either improve their network or
    B: Stop offering so called unlimited plans or C: Lower the deprioritizing cap to 15GB or 10GB Throttle cap? Heck At&t's old unlimited plan had a 5GB Throttling cap. And people still kept it and lived through it. Maybe Verizon should implement a hard cap instead of deprioritizing?

    According to one article both Verizon and AT&T may be throttling instead of depri'ing: https://www.pcmag.com/news/355963/ve...ted-data-users

    If the tower were actually congested the non-depri'ed phones should be hit with a slow down too.

    I can tell you for a fact At&t doesn't throttled. I have been putting them to the test simply by downloading files. In 2 days I have used 300 gigs and I have seen no slowdown.
