Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Erin

Data collected by our researchers shows that many of the top providers in Erin currently use data caps on residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue because consumers see them as a strategy to stop "cord cutting", while providers explain that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
