Data Caps and Video Streaming in Saint Albans
Data collected by our market research team shows that some of the common ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming on home broadband plans. Data caps are disliked since consumers see them as a tactic to stop "cord cutting". Providers maintain that caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is the same: streaming services, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
