Data Caps and Video Streaming in Toledo

Data collected by our researchers shows that many of the top ISPs in Toledo currently place some sort of limit on streaming for their home broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a tactic to limit "cord cutting", while providers insist data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily uses 1–7GB/hr.
