Data Cap Issues Around Delta

Data from our market research team suggests that popular providers in the area place a limit on streaming on residential broadband connections. Data caps are controversial because consumers view caps as a tactic for limiting streaming services. Providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion.
