Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Somerset

Data from our researchers shows that some of the popular providers place some sort of limit on streaming on home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because consumers see them as a tactic for limiting streaming, while providers maintain they are a necessary strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the issue is streaming video, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
