Data Cap Issues in Brighton

Data collected by our researchers suggests that common providers in Brighton place some sort of limit on streaming on home broadband plans. Data caps are disliked since consumers see caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers maintain they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is over-the-top streaming services, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
