Many Internet companies have decided to increase the use of data "plans" onto consumer broadband plans lately. This trend is certainly true for the Fresno market, with common providers such as Xfinity adding capped plans. It's not a large issue for the majority of Internet subscribers, but is liable to affect those that share the plan with multiple other family or friends or techies who upload a lot of high-def video.
