Data Caps in Highwood

Data collected by our research team shows that many of the top ISPs in the area currently place a limit on data use on home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because customers see them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain that they are a necessary strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the problem is video streaming, which easily eats up 1–7GB/hr.
