Data Caps and Video Streaming in Ellsworth

Data collected by our market researchers shows that some of the top providers in Ellsworth use data caps on residential broadband packages. Data caps are disliked since consumers view them as a strategy to stop video streaming. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. Either way, the issue is streaming video, which can use anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
