This pattern results from the fact that most Internet providers started as TV and landline phone companies. So, they already own legacy wired networks on telephone poles to deliver broadband Internet services.

Data Cap Issues Around Jefferson

Data from our market research team suggests that popular providers in Jefferson currently use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are controversial since consumers see them as a tactic to stop "cord cutting", while providers maintain data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
