Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Canyon

Data from our researchers suggests that some of the top ISPs place some sort of limit on data use for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the problem is video streaming, which easily eats up 1–7GB per hour.
