Data Caps in Munford

Internet providers have moved to increase the use of "data caps" onto their home broadband plans recently. This trend holds true in the Munford market, with local providers like Sparklight featuring plans with data caps. It's not a large issue for most customers, but it can be an issue for subscribers who share the service with family or friends or "power users" who stream a lot of high-def video. Caps for cable plans are generally around one Terabyte. This is a problem for fewer than one percent of customers. Potential Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers in Munford are advised to verify data caps before signing a contract, and not presume them based soley on statements online.
