Data Cap Issues in Froid

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that popular providers in Froid currently place some sort of limit on streaming on residential broadband packages. Data caps are controversial since subscribers see caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic.
