I love how Verizon is pushing customers to start streaming video left and right on their network now that they've all but done away with unlimited data. Say hello to massive overages and fees, I guess. Good job, Verizon.

They are pushing their customers to consume more data. That plus data caps means more revenue for Verizon. This is why I dislike them. It's a really cynical ploy on their part.

Lowell the Liar also said that since LTE was cheaper for Verizon, the savings would be passed on to the customers. What actually happened? Verizon raised prices.

So, you take anything Lowell the Liar says with a grain of salt.
