Data Cap Issues Around Hill City

Data from our market research team suggests that many of the popular ISPs place some sort of limit on data use for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue lately because customers see them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
