Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Roanoke

Data collected by our research team suggests that some of the popular ISPs in the area currently use data caps for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial since consumers see caps as a strategy to stop video streaming, while providers explain they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is video streaming, which can use one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
