    Emergency situation with thousands affected, priority should have been set for the first responders, period. Even if it’s a few seconds, it could help to save lives/items during these times.

    Well, if people die because of their greed then let them be sued. And blood on their hands.

    The "customer service error" was them not realizing how much bad press they'd get over this. They probably thought the fire department would just pay up and stay quiet.

    This IS FAKE news.. Spin.. even admitted to in this video there was an "ERROR".. but that did not stop BRUT from blaming this FAKE news based essentially on the Leftist' lost ability of the government to control our internet. The NANNY Leftist out there that really, really, really want everything controlled by unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats sitting in some desk in DC and deciding not only the speed we all need, but he data package and eventually the CONTENT of what any of us post on the internet.. This is LEFTIST Propaganda designed to take away even more of our freedom . Total BS. BRUT should be ashamed.

    How is this not illegal? Verizon is deliberately throttling the connection of people who could save lives by getting information out quickly. By throttling it, they’re directly responsible for any injuries and deaths that occur afterwards in this instance, in my opinion.
