Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting Around Templeton

Data from our research team suggests that some of the common providers use data caps on home Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue lately because customers view caps as a strategy for limiting video streaming, while providers maintain that data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the problem is the same: streaming video, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes/hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Templeton

Reliability

Have been a loyal Xfinity Internet customer for 14 years at my current location. Anyone else in North Central Massachusetts experienced very unreliable connectivity over the last 3-4 months. When the service is up, it screams at top speeds, but it seems that it goes down very often during the day. Troubleshoot my own connectivity on a regular basis and it's not internal for sure.
