Wow, it’s almost like data caps were just a cheap cash grab after all and all of the b/s about service degradation was just post hoc justification.

While I generally share your skepticism, they also may have found that their usage (particularly on weekdays in busy business areas) is far lower right now. Meaning they may have capacity that they didn’t have 3 weeks ago.

Say what? They’re making good on a year ago when they throttled Fire Depts’ 4G during the huge fires in the USA. Also, it’s a business, and in competition with others which means it needs to make money to survive and data caps are one way to do that.

Yes, I believe the business part is the OP’s point. Companies, including Verizon, have regularly said data caps are a necessity to keep their network functional or it will crash under heavy load when evidence shows almost every company’s network in even the most congested locations could easily handle free unlimited data for all.

Data caps solely exist to make money.

Also T-Mobile offered every customer unlimited data for free a week or two ago IIRC.

Yeah right. Try that on Sprint and report back to us.

Verizon was just granted spectrum on an emergency basis, which makes it easier to make this offer. Not to mention people aren’t crowding downtowns during rush hour.

Is this 15gb on top of the throttling unlimited plans? For example i have beyond unlimited which gets throttled after 22 gb. Does that now become 37?

Appears so. VZ will add 15GB of high speed data to your unlimited plan. It can also be used for hotspot.

I have prepaid and got 15GB as well.
