Data Cap Issues in Georgetown

Data collected by our market research team suggests that some of the top providers in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial since customers view caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services. Providers explain data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming services, which can use one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
