Data Caps Among Ivel Broadband Providers

Many Internet providers have begun to add "data caps" to home broadband plans in recent years. The trend is certainly true for the Ivel market, with common Internet choices such as IMCTV adding capped plans. It's not a large issue for the majority of Internet subscribers, but it can be an issue for subscribers that share their service or "power users" who download a lot of HD or 4K content. Caps with cable bundles tend to be about one Terabyte. This is way more than 99 percent of customers use, according to reports from Comcast. Potential Inter Mountain Cable customers are advised to double check data limits before signing up. Do not presume them based on statements online.
