Data Cap Issues Around Weirsdale
Data from our research team suggests that top ISPs in the area use data caps on residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue since users view them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
