Data Cap Issues in Firth

Data from our researchers suggests that top providers in Firth currently place a limit on data use for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue since customers view them as a tactic to discourage video streaming, while providers explain that they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
