Data Caps Among Belmont Internet Providers

Internet providers have begun to add "data caps" onto residential Internet packages recently. This trend is certainly true in the Belmont market, with Internet companies such as Xfinity advertising capped plans. It's not a large issue for most Internet subscribers, but it may affect subscribers who share their service with household members or "power users" who stream a lot of HD or 4K content. Data caps on cable packages tend to be around 1 Terabyte. This is more than 99 percent of customers use, according to a report from Comcast. Potential XFINITY from Comcast customers should verify data use policies before signing a contract, and not presume them based soley on phone rep statements.
