Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Dakota City

Data collected by our market research team shows that many of the popular ISPs in Dakota City currently use data caps for their residential broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue because consumers view them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting". Providers maintain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is streaming video, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
