Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Oakfield

Data collected by our research team suggests that many of the top ISPs in the area currently use data caps for their home Internet plans. Data caps are controversial because consumers view caps as a tactic to stop streaming services. Providers explain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
