Data Caps in Carr

Data collected by our research team shows that common ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because users view them as a strategy to limit video streaming, while providers explain that data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion.
