    However, if Verizon is head strong about curbing data usage? And the fcc insist on certain stipulations that Verizon doesn't want to conceeed? Big Red might pull UDP all together if push came to shove. Maybe they would keep UDP for corporate companies and certain business's? Or another thing
    Is to put lte on the Aws spectrum only and implement this network Optimization

    Edit:

    In reading this article, I don't think the Fcc can implement the C-block rule on Verizon?

    A federal appeals court has struck down important segments of the FCC's Open Internet rules, determining that the agency doesn't have the power to require internet service providers to treat all traffic equally. The DC circuit court has ruled on Verizon v. FCC, a challenge to the net neutrality rules put in place in 2010,*vacating the FCC's anti-discrimination and anti-blocking policies, though it preserved disclosure requirements that Verizon opposed — in other words, carriers can make some traffic run faster or block other services, but they have to tell subscribers.

    The C block rules aren't part of net neutrality. They're part of a separate agreement, so the FCC may have a leg to stand on.

    But doesn't federal law stating fcc doesn't have the authority of regulate isp's from treating data equally, I. E. Throttling or even blocking at their discretion? Trump the C-block language?

    Verizon had to agree to specific terms when they purchased the C-block. They have been throttling 3g unlimited customers for awhile now. The reason they got away with out a problem is because these customers are not accessing the C-block.

    Ok... So why isn't the fcc straight out blocking this proposal?
    There is a provision in the C-block rule
    That allows Verizon to manage their network to keep it stable and secure as they see fit. Which in this case Verizon
    wants to throttle high data users on UDP'S and umhs
