Data Cap Issues Around Frankfort

Data collected by our market research team suggests that many of the popular ISPs in the area use data caps on residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because consumers see caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion.
