FCC Chair 'Troubled' by Verizon's Throttling

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler is questioning Verizon Wireless’ decision to slow connection speeds for certain customers during times of peak network congestion. In a letter to the carrier, Wheeler pronounced himself “deeply troubled” by Verizon’s plans to slow connection speeds for a subset of its subscribers -- those with older, unlimited data plans -- during times when the network is experiencing high demand.
