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.
