Millinocket ISPs with Data Caps

Both major providers in Millinocket place data use limitations on some Internet packages. Package limits have variations between packages. Data caps have the biggest impact on people who use their broadband connection quite heavily. Streaming in HD use as much as 3 Gigabytes per hour. This isn't a risk to a data ceiling in the 250–1,000GB range. That said, 4K video is commonly cited as an issue with data caps. 4K TV consumes much more GB/hr than an SD or HD stream.
