Data Caps and Video Streaming Around Wayne

Data from our research team suggests that many of the common providers in the area use data caps for their home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see caps as a tactic for limiting streaming. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion.
