Why did Verizon and AT&T networks slow down? Unlimited plan users went crazy with mobile data
In fact, according to Opanga Network analysts, the average mobile data consumption has increased twofold since the carriers went unlimited, which explains the enormous strain on Verizon and AT&T networks, which are the ones with the most customers.
Verizon took measures recently by introducing new plans with stricter usage limits, while T-Mobile also raised prices a bit, after the initial period of breakneck market share grab. Oh, well, if you build it, they will come.
