It looks like Verizon is about to make its unlimited LTE plans a little less appealing by throttling customers who download too much. Droid Life has confirmed that Verizon will be reducing the speed of its consumers' unlimited LTE plans once they reach a certain amount of traffic.

This magic number is set at 4.7GB, and is the result of something Verizon is labeling as "Network Optimization". This will see unlimited LTE users experiencing throttled speeds once they jump over 4.7GB of usage within a month, is on an unlimited data plan, and in a two-year contract, and attemps to "use data on a cell site that is experiencing high demand".
