Redditor AbeFroman21 posted that he and his family are without power or internet due to Hurricane Florence, and that Verizon has throttled their internet access to an unusable trickle, offering to unblock them if they pay for a higher tier of service.

The incident recalls last month's news that Verizon was throttling firefighters battling California's record-breaking wildfires, refusing to unblock them unless they paid for a more expensive account.
