The Verizon Network Optimization saga continues today with a brief response from the carrier to the news of FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s concerns.

Verizon today published a brief statement regarding the news of FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s letter that described Verizon’s 4G LTE Network Optimization effort as “disturbing.” The statement reads thusly:

“We will officially respond to the Chairman's letter once we have received and reviewed it. However, what we announced last week was a highly targeted and very limited network optimization effort, only targeting cell sites experiencing high demand. The purpose is to ensure there is capacity for everyone in those limited circumstances, and that high users don't limit capacity for others.”

Verizon’s response isn’t surprising. As I mentioned yesterday, users will need to meet four specific requirements before having their service “optimized,” and it seems unlikely that many folks will ever meet all four criteria. It’s understandable that those customers still clutching their Verizon unlimited data plans are concerned, though. What will be interesting is seeing how, if at all, Tom Wheeler’s actions will affect Verizon’s Network Optimization effort.
