Data Cap Issues Around Alachua

Data from our researchers suggests that many of the top providers in Alachua place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because subscribers see them as a strategy to discourage video streaming, while providers explain that data caps are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
