Data Limits in Golf

Many Internet providers have moved to add data limits onto home broadband plans in recent years. This trend holds true for the Golf market, with providers like Xfinity featuring plans with data caps. It's not a large concern for the majority of residents, but is liable to be an issue for those who download or upload a large amount of 4K video.
