Data Cap Issues in Jackson

Data from our research team suggests that some of the popular ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming for their home Internet packages. Data caps are a public issue because customers view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: streaming video, which easily uses 1–7GB per hour.
