Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Fountain

Data from our researchers shows that top ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue because consumers see caps as a strategy to limit streaming, while providers insist they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
