Data Cap Issues in Guthrie Center

Data from our researchers suggests that common providers use data caps for their home Internet packages. Data caps are a public issue lately because consumers see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers maintain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic.
