Data Caps in Waterloo

Internet providers have moved to increase the use of data "plans" to their residential broadband plans in recent years. The trend is certainly true for the Waterloo market, with common Internet choices such as Cox featuring plans with data caps. It's not a large issue for most customers, but it might be an issue for users who share their service or "power users" who upload a large amount of HD or 4K content. Data caps for cable plans tend to be in the neighborhood of one Terabyte, which is way more than is used by 99% of customers, according to reports from Comcast. Cox Communications customers are advised to confirm data caps before signing up, and not presume them based soley on phone rep statements.
