Data Caps Around Taylor

Data collected by our market research team shows that many of the common ISPs in the area currently use data caps on residential broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which can consume 1–7GB/hr.
