Local Verizon rep told me Verizon puts Straight Talk users at the "end of the line" when tower demand is piling up.

Finding similar results with Metro PCS.

So, now, what's this totalwireless? Makes me tired.
 
I can't say for certain, but this is quite likely. It's also possible that the MVNO is only paying for a small portion of the towers' capacities, and when you have too many people from the same MVNO are connected to the same tower, you might get throttled.

There's a reason why Verizon will likely charge you more.

This is all speculation, of course.
