Data Caps in Bellingham
Data from our market research team shows that common providers currently place a limit on data use on residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because users view them as a tactic for limiting streaming, while providers explain data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily uses 1–7GB per hour.
