Data from our research team suggests that some of the top providers in the area place a limit on streaming for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because users view caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist that they are a necessary tool for managing network congestion. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up 1–7GB/hour.
