Data Caps in Bellwood

Internet companies have moved to increase the use of data "plans" to consumer broadband plans recently. This market trend is certainly true in the Bellwood market, with common providers like Vyve Broadband selling plans with data caps. It's not a large concern for most customers, but is liable to be an issue for those who share the plan or "power users" who stream a large amount of 4K video.

Vyve Broadband customers in Bellwood should double check data use policies before signing a contract.
