Data Limits on South San Francisco Internet Plans

Internet providers have moved to impose data "plans" to their home Internet packages recently. The trend holds true in the South San Francisco market, with Internet choices like Xfinity advertising plans with data caps. It's not a major issue for most customers, but it is liable to affect households who share the service or "power users" who upload a large amount of HD or 4K video. If you have data usage concerns, look for fiber plans in your area using the search bar at the top of this page. Fiber packages are often a bit pricier. However, they can offer non-capped data use without throttling because fiber line doesn't share limited bandwidth seen with cable and DSL connections.
