Data Caps and Video Streaming in Cimarron

Data collected by our researchers suggests that common providers in the area currently place some sort of limit on streaming on residential broadband connections. Data caps are disliked because consumers view them as a strategy to discourage streaming, while providers maintain that they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion.
