Throttling streaming video will save Verizon $2.5 billion a year

Research from analyst Chetan Sharma estimates that AT&T and Verizon saw data consumption double, based on a 24-hour time window, after the introduction of unlimited plans. That kind of overnight increase is unsustainable, no matter how good the network. Data from OpenSignal and Ookla showed some kind of change or slowdown in Verizon’s network after the introduction of unlimited plans, although that may have been a result of customers hitting the deprioritization threshold, rather than an all-around speed decrease. – Chris Mills, BGR http://ift.tt/2f5Zcrz
