Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting in Winston

Data collected by our researchers suggests that common providers in the area use data caps on residential Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since users view them as a tactic to stop "cord cutting". Providers maintain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the problem is streaming services, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
