Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Blue Ridge

Data collected by our researchers suggests that some of the common ISPs in Blue Ridge place some sort of limit on streaming on home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because users see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming. Providers insist data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is over-the-top streaming, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Blue Ridge

Great Customer Service

ETC is the best provider I've dealt with in over 20 years in different parts of the US. The folks there are super friendly. It was easy to schedule, and the tech was competent, friendly, and quickly got us up and running. I'm pleased with the speed I have (150/10), but I do miss the Gigabit Fiber I used to have before I moved here. Here's hoping fiber comes sooner rather than later.
