There is a strong amount of market choice between companies in Cambridge, but 1,000 locals are still without access to more than one provider. The consequence of this is that if they aren't satisfied by the quality of service, they are forced to use a poor quality wireless. Luckily, this issue isn't widespread in Cambridge — the average household has 3-4 Internet options.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Cambridge
Data collected by our researchers suggests that some of the top ISPs in Cambridge use data caps on residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
