Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Pleasant Grove

Data from our research team suggests that some of the popular providers in Pleasant Grove place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet connections. Data caps are controversial because customers view them as a tactic to limit video streaming, while providers explain they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
