Data Caps in Poulan

Many Internet providers have been moving to add data "plans" to home Internet packages as of late. This trend is certainly true in Poulan, with local Internet companies like Mediacom featuring plans with data caps. It's not a major issue for the majority of customers, but may be an issue for households who share the plan with multiple other family or friends or techies who upload a lot of high-def content. Caps with cable packages are usually in the neighborhood of 1 Terabyte, which is more than 99 percent of customers use, according to a report from Xfinity. Potential Mediacom Cable customers in Poulan should double check data use policies before signing up.
