Should Verizon be allowed to slow the service of its top data users to allow its other users access to the network?

  • FCC chairman puts Verizon in hot seat over new throttling policy

    On Wednesday, he sent a letter to Verizon's top wireless executive questioning the company's expansion of a network management policy that targets unlimited data plan customers. In the letter to Verizon Wireless CEO Daniel Mead, Wheeler said he was "deeply troubled" by Verizon's announcement last week that it plans to slow down some customers' data speeds on its 4G LTE network starting in October.

    "It is disturbing to me that Verizon Wireless would base its 'network management' on distinctions among its customers' data plans, rather than on network architecture or technology," he said in the letter.

  • Yes, Verizon should be allowed to run their business as they see fit.

    Verizon should be allowed to slow the service of its top data users as long as its users are aware of this policy. The only people that would be hurt by this policy are heavy data users who were aware of it from the time they signed up, and perhaps Verizon itself. If people aren't happy with Verizon's data-limiting practices, they'll simply sign up with a different internet provider. As long as Verizon doesn't have a monopoly on the market, the government has no good reason to interfere.

  • Verizon should slow the service

    I believe that Verizon should be able to slow the service of its top data users to allow its other users to access the network. every one should be allowed to access the network even if that means it is going to be slow for some people. If people want to access they should be able to.

  • Verizon needs to cut the top users bill.

    If Verizon, thinks about slowing the top users data in order for other to use then the people that are using the top speed should receive a discount, or a reinbursement, for the fact that it's not fair that they are paying more for their speed, and the people getting the lower speed, don't have to pay as much.
