Submission + - Verizon to Throttle Data for Top 5% (

olsmeister writes: Verizon announced Thursday that it will begin throttling data for the top 5% of its data users on their unlimited plan. Once a limit is reached, speeds would be throttled for the remainder of the billing period as well as the next billing period as well.

Also, they will be introducing new image and video compression that will reduce the size of that data but result in lower quality.
