Data Cap Issues in Carmel
Data from our researchers suggests that top providers in the area use data caps for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since customers view them as a strategy to discourage video streaming. Providers insist that data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic.
