Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Baker

Data from our researchers shows that some of the top ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming on residential broadband connections. Data caps are disliked because consumers view them as a strategy to stop streaming. Providers insist that they are a necessary tool for managing network congestion.
