Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Hamel

Data collected by our researchers shows that popular ISPs in Hamel place some sort of limit on data use for their home broadband packages. Data caps are controversial because users view them as a strategy to stop streaming services. Providers explain they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
