The Verizon iPhone is finally on the sector, officially. The first reviews from customers are that Verizon service is pretty good, if a little slow. Verizon has promised one thing to keep its network going that may be unpopular. Heavy data users could be throttled-- for months at a time. Post resource - Verizon plans on extreme throttling for extreme data users by Newsytype.com.

Reports of the Verizon iPhone have come out

February three was when the iPhone was delivered to Verizon consumers. The network is being tested out by new consumers after years of speculation on it. There aren’t dropped calls in most large cities and high traffic areas yet. Download and upload speeds are a little slower than AT&T's peak service, but it does appear to be fulfilling the service promise of "more dependable."

What data throttling is

There have been interviews with AT&T. The business has said individual data throttling does not occur officially. However, the company is moving to a tiered data system in which the heaviest customers of data could have to pay more for their data transfer. Verizon did post on its website that data throttling will be taking place, meaning some customers can have slower connections on purpose. You will find reasons for this. 2 are specifically stated. First off, Verizon hopes to maintain its unlimited data plan. The service needs to stay dependable. That indicates Verizon will have to throttle the top 5 percent of users during these peak hours.

Other things data excessive use does

During large use, Verizon Wireless will throttle iPhone data. The anger doesn’t come from that though. There could be an extended period of time where the data usage could be limited for heaviest customers by Verizon Wireless. Verizon plans to throttle service for the top 5 % limit in the month the user does it. Verizon will throttle service the next month too. In other words, go over the limit once and your service can be slowed for two months. Verizon says this is to maintain service reliability, but many customers are calling it draconian.
