Data Caps in Gibbon

Many Internet companies have moved to add data limits onto their consumer broadband packages in recent years. This market trend is certainly true for Gibbon, with Internet choices such as Mediacom advertising plans with data caps. It's not a large issue for the majority of residents, but might be an issue for subscribers that share their service with multiple other family or "power users" who upload a lot of high-def content. For reference, an HD video stream on Netflix consumes about 3GB of data per hour.
