Data Caps in Hector

Data collected by our researchers suggests that common ISPs use data caps on residential broadband plans. Data caps are disliked since subscribers see them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily uses anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
