karmaceutical: taurusowner: Verizon customer here with a phone that experiences data drops probably 15 times a day.

Of course they have the right to throttle speeds. It's their infrastructure, their towers, their repair technicians keeping things running, their network handling traffic. It's called "ownership". When something is yours, you get to do what you want with it. The cellular network and the associated hardware and software belong to Verizon. Not me. Not you. Not Congress. Don't like it, go build your own.

This is a weird kind of troll. I've got to admit, I don't frequent the Geek tab much. Is this kind of thing normal?

They aren't usually first...they are usually about 100 posts in, so most Farkers just scan past them.

Something tells me it's a Verizon sales rep that's annoyed with the calls to his store.
