Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Breese
Data from our market research team suggests that some of the popular ISPs in the area use data caps for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial since consumers see them as a tactic to stop "cord cutting", while providers explain that they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion.
