Data Caps Around Stone

Data collected by our market researchers shows that top providers in the area use data caps for their home Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since consumers see them as a strategy to limit streaming services. Providers insist that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
