As of August 23rd Verizon has implemented a network-wide ban on 4K content by throttling all mobile video to 720p and all tablet video to 1080p.
If this isn’t bad enough Verizon has also stated that any provider deemed to be a video service would be throttled to 10 Mbps.
Other mobile networks are also implementing similar throttling measures to their “unlimited” plans which means users won’t be able to enjoy 4K content and whilst this isn’t a big deal for most users and devices it’s still an issue where providers are dictating what users can do with their data.
Thankfully users can overcome this and enjoy the 4K experience especially if they have an unlimited data plan by using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) Which encrypts your internet traffic and therefore masks its content from your provider.
