Data Caps on Harold Internet Plans

Many Internet providers have begun to add "data caps" to home broadband packages lately. The trend holds true in the Harold market, with local ISPs such as IMCTV adding capped plans. This might not matter for most Internet users, but it is liable to be an issue for users that share the service or techies who download or upload a large amount of high-def video. Caps for cable packages tend to be around one Terabyte. This is way more than 99 percent of customers use. Inter Mountain Cable customers should confirm data caps before signing up, and not assume them based soley on statements online.
