Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Harrington

Data collected by our research team shows that some of the popular providers in the area place some sort of limit on streaming on residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can use anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
