Verizon is looking to make a quick buck on your video streaming habits.  It appears that they are throttling your videos and will allow you to stream higher quality for a $10 upcharge to your regular bill.  I understand network management and bandwidth, but I think that consumers are looking for a deal without a bunch of red tape.  Just up their monthly bill a bit and let it include everything.  As a consumer, I am tired of getting nickel-ed and dimed over every little feature.  I wonder if this is a way to better manage their network performance, or if this is not a desperate attempt to reach into the pockets of customers.

What do you think about this move?  Share your thoughts about providers and billing for the community to discuss.  We all know we are getting throttled in some way by most providers.  At the very least, our traffic is being rated and QoS is being applied in order to provide the best service to customers.  However, I do believe that providers are also making moves to increase their profits in ways that do not always make sense.
