Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Highland

Data from our researchers suggests that common ISPs in Highland currently place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because customers see them as a tactic to stop streaming services. Providers insist that they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can use anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
