Data Caps and Video Streaming in Franklin
Data from our market research team suggests that many of the top providers use data caps for their home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since consumers view caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
