Many Internet providers have decided to increase the use of data limits onto consumer broadband plans recently. This trend is certainly true for Dolton, with local ISPs such as Xfinity featuring plans with data caps. This doesn't really matter for most Internet users, but it might be an issue for users that download a large amount of high-def video. Data caps with cable bundles are generally in the neighborhood of one Terabyte. This is an issue for fewer than 1% of Internet users, according to a report from Xfinity. Xfinity customers are advised to verify data caps before signing up. Do not presume them based on phone rep statements.
