Data Cap Issues Around Wanakena

Data from our researchers suggests that many of the top providers currently use data caps on residential broadband packages. Data caps are controversial because users view caps as a strategy to stop streaming services, while providers maintain they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily uses one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
