Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Saint Charles

Data collected by our market research team shows that some of the top providers in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because consumers view them as a strategy for limiting video streaming. Providers maintain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming services, which easily consumes 1–7GB/hour.
