Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Paint Lick

Data collected by our market research team shows that many of the popular providers place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet packages. Data caps are a public issue lately since subscribers view them as a tactic to limit streaming services, while providers maintain data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which can eat up 1–7GB per hour.
