Data Caps and Video Streaming in Pierce

Data from our researchers shows that popular providers in Pierce currently use data caps for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked since subscribers view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the problem is the same: streaming video, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
