Data Caps on Kinston Internet Plans

Many Internet providers have begun to add "data caps" to home broadband packages recently. The trend is certainly true for the Kinston market, with local Internet choices like Suddenlink advertising capped plans. This doesn't really matter for most residents, but might be an issue for households that stream a lot of 4K content. Caps for cable plans tend to be about 1 Terabyte, which is more than is used by 99% of customers. Potential Suddenlink Communications customers in Kinston should double check data use policies when signing up, and not assume them based soley on online statements.
