Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Rex
Data from our market research team shows that some of the common providers place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet connections. Data caps are controversial because users view caps as a tactic to discourage streaming services. Providers insist they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up 1–7GB/hour.
