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.
