Verizon argues unlimited data is bad for customers

Verizon wireless is that unlimited data is bad. Then why did they offer it before? The only reason is they can not bill for the data, if they could charge for overages or higher data plans then it would be okay to use as much data as you want.
My bill is  around $70 on my old plan with unlimited data but on the new plans I would pay $250 a month. Verizon would not complain but I am using the same amount of data just paying more.
Verizon slows my MiFi hotspot when I stream movies from certain sites not all only the ones. That would only mean they are monitoring my usage, another reason this Net Neutrality is a big issue with me. I buy my equipment at full retail or used so I can keep my plans, I will never change unless forced too.

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Prepaid Plans

Verizon is bringing LTE service to its AllSet prepaid plans. Rumors of the plans getting LTE were first reported earlier this month by the blog Droid Life. The plans are for feature pones and smartphones, with the cheapest prepaid smartphone plan starting at $45 per month for unlimited voice and texting and 500 MB of data.
And with BRIDGE DATA, customers can customize their usage allowances by adding data to their account whenever they want. Any unused data from the current monthly cycle will move to the next, so customers pay for what they need without extra fees or overcharge charges.

BRIDGE DATA options include:

1 GB for $10 with 90-day expiration
3 GB for $20 with 90-day expiration

Draped in a chic, slinky white dress, Lopez stood in front of a giant display and flashing lights talking about the opportunity she saw in catering to the Hispanic market with family-friendly stores, more attentive services, and — of course — J-Lo-inspired smartphone cases.
