    Verizon throttling Ultd data

    Can someone please tell if Verizon has started throttling unlimited data plan users after its win in net neutrality case or any changes observed after the judgement?

    No one knows for certain.

    If they have it may be on more congested towers.

    But I don't really think at this time they officially are. Let alone on a nationwide level.

    As AT&T has started aggressively throttle down. So thinking to move to Verizon.

    The net neutrality ruling is irrelevant. Verizon is legally forbidden from throttling on the 700 MHz C block by the terms of their lease. If they did start throttling, they'd be subject to legal action regardless.

    please elaborate or post links to the law that forbids verizon from throttling on the 700 c block

    Just came across a document of FCC through Wikipedia, that document had information about that policy in 700MHz upper C block. Verizon and another company sued FCC but later withdrew the cases.

    It's been post numerous times over the past year or so, just do search of the Verizon forum here on Hofo & you should find plenty of information.

    No, have not been throttled on 4G, but I was throttled on 3G near UW-Milwaukee campus because of overloaded towers. I had a thread on it, speeds were miserable, pings over 2000ms. I thought it was a network problem but after months of complaining tech support said it was a throttle.

    Nobody says you HAVE to buy a phone with a locked bootloader. There's a developer edition of the Moto X you can do whatever you want with. The Galaxy Nexus was completely unlocked. There's a few other phones that are similarly open to modification.

    When I saw 3G throttling (on an aircard, whose updated TOS allowed throttling) I saw some throttling when I was at about 8GB (TOS allowed 5GB), but it was pretty minor. When a 3G site was down to 700-800kbps anyway, I would be throttled to around 220kbps. At that point, speeds were not dipping down enough for throttling to kick in more than a few times a month.

    As for LTE, as far as I know there's no throttling. I would guess if they did implement it, it'd be similar to the 3G setup where they would throttle to some speed only if the site has heavy usage.

    It's not throttling. They don't deliberately limit the speed you can achieve. What they do is use a queuing mechanism to determine how many forward link timeslots each user receives. Users in the Top 5% are placed into a different queue than everybody else. If the tower is even slightly idle you won't see any quantifiable impact from such a system, it only times into play when the all forward link timeslots are demanded.

    When I had a 3G only device my monthly totals averaged 6GB to 10GB, and I only saw slowdowns on two or three cell sites that were prone to congestion. The rest of the time it was business as usual.

    Frankly I don't know how many people this truly impacts these days, because they only apply the policy to people with 3G-only devices AND unlimited data plans. 4G devices don't receive such treatment, even when they're accessing the 3G network.
