Data Caps in Melba

Data collected by our market researchers shows that many of the top providers currently use data caps on residential Internet packages. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see caps as a strategy to stop streaming. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
