Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Austin

Data from our market research team suggests that some of the common ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their home broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming services. Providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is the same: streaming video, which easily consumes one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
