Verison 3G - Not Throttling .. Choking Instead

Another rip off operation from Verizon folks.

This month, Verizon will be making good on its threat to choke data speeds for the most active 5 percent of its 3G data customers. If you use 2GB of data or more each month and have a 3G unlimited plan, there's a good chance this slow-down applies to you.It isn't "throttling," of course, Verizon wants you to know.

Throttling is a long-term downgrading of your data speeds, Big Red said in a statement online, whereas its "Network Optimization" is more like a series of speed bumps to slow you down when the network needs a traffic cop.
Unlike throttling, Verizon says it will return you to your usual speeds once the congestion has ceased, which could take anywhere from seconds to hours, and there's no way of knowing exactly when the cell nearest you is overburdened.

I have to ask the obvious here, why are these rip off companies allowed to say a package is "unlimited" when its clearly not ?
