Data Limits on Parma Internet Plans

Many Internet providers have begun to add data "plans" onto consumer broadband packages recently. This market trend holds true in the Parma market, with common Internet companies like Sparklight selling capped plans. It's not a major concern for most Internet users, but it can be an issue for households who download or upload a large amount of high-def content. Data caps with cable packages tend to be around 1 Terabyte, which is an issue for fewer than one percent of Internet users, according to a report from Comcast. Potential Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers should verify data caps before signing a contract.
