Verizon may not be the best place for Netflix subscribers

Verizon is reportedly capping download speeds for customers streaming videos from Netflix, according to a thread over on Reddit.

Users are reportedly unable to reach download speeds any faster than 10Mbps when they run Netflix’s speed test tool, Fast.com.

The same Big Red customers usually pull in rates of around 40Mbps, recorded using Ookla’s trusty Speed Test.

Unless you’re streaming 4K content, you shouldn’t really notice the data cap as 10Mbps is more than sufficient for smooth Full HD playback.

Netflix isn’t to blame

“We are definitely not capping data on our end and don’t cap data for any mobile networks,” said Netflix in a statement issued to The Verge.

Should Verizon comment on the news, we will be sure to update.
