Verizon Wireless adopted a new policy that gives it the right to slow down the data connection of its heaviest bandwidth users, as the No. 1 U.S. carrier began taking advance orders for the Apple Inc. iPhone.

I told you Verizon was evil. Need more proof?

Here ya go:

Verizon Wireless spokesman Jeffrey Nelson said the introduction of the policy wasn’t related to the coming debut of the iPhone. “This is clearly something we’ve been looking at for some time and introducing now,” he said. “There’s nothing magic about the timing.”

CLEARLY this timing is coincidental.
