Data Cap Issues Around Hopkinton

Data collected by our researchers suggests that popular providers in the area use data caps for their home Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue since subscribers see them as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic.
