Data Cap Issues in Jekyll Island

Data from our researchers shows that many of the popular providers currently use data caps for their home broadband connections. Data caps are controversial because users see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming, while providers maintain that caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is video streaming, which easily consumes one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
