Data Cap Issues Around Westhampton Beach
Data collected by our market research team shows that some of the common ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming on home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since customers view them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is over-the-top streaming, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
