If it helps, I heard that because they dont wanna do unlimited anymore, they will slow down the ppl with unlimited to get them to switch to a limited data plan.

That's exactly their plan. This network optimization only affects unlimited data customers. Another customer could use 500 GB in a day as long as they're paying for it.

Weird how they start doing this just as t-mobile comes out with a plan that's unlimited with no throttling.

What do you mean come out? They had it for quite awhile. Last carrier to have truly unlimited.

Maybe it's because I never had the luxury of ever having unlimited data because when I got my first smartphone, Verizon had already gotten rid of unlimited and I haven't ever been on a different carrier, but I can't even begin to fathom how someone can uses that much data unless they do some serious media consumption/torrenting daily.

I don't even know what I'd do with unlimited data. ~3GB is my monthly usage.

Sucks that Verizon is going to throttle unlimited users, but they'll do ANYTHING to get you off of the plan (other than pay you to).

Lol that 11GB is alot. My cycle just finished a few days ago and my line used 169GB and the wifes used 79 GB.

Hell I'm currently at 42GB and the wife is at 19GB and we are only a few days in!

It doesn't look like I've been throttled down at all... And I average 20-40gb a month for the past 6 years.
My home wifi is actually even faster so I don't use 4G at home very much anymore.

I have noticed a drop in speeds. Been contemplating a switch to TMO, not sure of service in my area though.

I believe I was optimized today. Just hit 16gb for the month. I was in a small town next to the interstate with moderate traffic. My data was so slow that my phone was completely unusable. Web pages and the play store would time out before anything loaded. Email still worked. Restarting and turning on off Airplane mode did not help. As soon as I got closer to the city my speeds picked up again.
