Data Cap Issues in Visalia
Data from our researchers suggests that common providers in the area use data caps for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue lately since customers see them as a tactic for limiting streaming services, while providers explain that data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Visalia
Only provider in town. Reliable.
The service is reliable and decent relative to the area. It can handle Netflix and a steam download at once. I am happy with the service, albeit unsatisfied with the speeds. I still have a hard time sharing files for professional use(large files/video edits/cad files) but it does most of the basic tasks efficiently.
