25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.
Data Cap Issues in Freeport
Data from our market researchers shows that popular ISPs in Freeport use data caps on home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue lately because subscribers view them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers explain that caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the problem is over-the-top streaming services, which can consume 1–7GB per hour.
