Data Cap Issues Around Pollock
Data from our research team suggests that many of the popular ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming on residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial because customers see them as a strategy to stop streaming, while providers maintain that they are a necessary tool for managing heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes 1–7GB/hr.
