Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Rowland
Data collected by our market researchers shows that some of the popular ISPs place a limit on streaming for their home broadband packages. Data caps are a public issue lately since customers view them as a strategy to stop streaming services, while providers insist they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Rowland
Throttled at 100GB
We are in our first month and I am not happy. We hardly get even a quarter of the max speed advertised, half the month it hasn’t worked, and right at 100GB, they throttle us to a speed of .25Mbps which isn’t even enough to browse the internet. All of this for $150 a month. Not worth the money at all. I’m about to pay the $15 termination fee,
