Data Caps in Amboy

Internet companies have been moving to add data "plans" onto consumer Internet packages recently. The trend is certainly true in the Amboy market, with local ISPs like Xfinity selling plans with data caps. This won't really matter for most customers, but it is liable to be an issue for those that share the WiFi with family or "power users" who stream a lot of high-def content. Data caps for cable bundles are generally in the neighborhood of one Terabyte, which is a problem for fewer than 1% of Internet users. XFINITY from Comcast customers should verify data use policies when signing up.
