Data Caps Among Shoshone Internet Service Providers

Internet companies have been moving to increase the use of "data caps" to consumer broadband packages as of late. The trend is certainly true in Shoshone, with common Internet companies such as Sparklight featuring capped plans. It's not a large concern for most customers, but might affect subscribers that share the connection or techies who consume a lot of high-def video. Caps with cable plans are usually about one Terabyte. This is way more than is used by 99% of customers. Potential Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers in Shoshone should confirm data use policies before signing a contract. Do not presume them based on phone rep statements.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Shoshone

Decent

Safelink has been decent for the most part, better than internet providers I've had in the past. However, there are times (regularly) that it becomes extremely slow.
