Data Caps Among Williamsport Broadband Providers

Internet providers have moved to increase the use of data limits to residential Internet packages as of late. This trend holds true for Williamsport, with local ISPs like Shentel advertising plans with data caps. It's not a large concern for the majority of residents, but might affect users who consume a large amount of HD or 4K video. For reference, an HD video stream uses around 3GB hourly, according to Netflix guidelines.
