Data Limits in Ucon

Many Internet providers have been moving to add "data caps" to their residential Internet plans lately. This trend holds true in the Ucon market, with common ISPs like Sparklight adding plans with data caps. It's not a large issue for the majority of residents, but may be an issue for those who share their service or "power users" who consume a lot of high-def video. Data caps for cable plans tend to be about one Terabyte, which is more than 99 percent of customers use. Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers are advised to verify data caps when signing up, and not assume them based on online statements.
