Many Internet companies have been moving to impose data limits onto their home Internet packages recently. The market trend holds true in the Albion market, with ISPs such as Sparklight featuring capped plans. It's not a major concern for most residents, but may be an issue for subscribers who download a lot of high-def video. Caps for cable packages tend to be in the neighborhood of 1 Terabyte.
