Data Caps and Video Streaming in Overton

Data from our researchers suggests that top ISPs use data caps on residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because users view them as a strategy to discourage "cord cutting". Providers explain caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: video streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hour.
