Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Viper

Data collected by our researchers suggests that some of the top ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on streaming for their home broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue because users see them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion.
