Data Caps in Saint Paul

Data collected by our research team shows that many of the common providers currently use data caps on home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because customers see caps as a strategy for limiting video streaming. Providers insist that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the issue is over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
