The market trend is certainly true in the Mount Prospect market, with local Internet choices like Xfinity advertising plans with data caps. It's not a large concern for most residents, but might be an issue for those that upload a large amount of high-def content. Data caps on cable bundles tend to be about one Terabyte.
