This trend is certainly true for the Burt market, with common ISPs like Mediacom selling plans with data caps. This won't matter for the majority of Internet subscribers, but may affect users that share the service with family or friends or "power users" who stream a lot of high-def content.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Burt

Great Service

We were ecstatic to have LTD offered in our area. Previously, we had satellite service which was awful and expensive. Made the switch to a cell-based service which was ok, but limited speed and data. LTD’s service gave us the ability to reliably use the internet for daily use, kids' online gaming and security. Extremely happy with LTD customer service.
