Data Limits in Stokes

Internet companies have been moving to impose data limits onto their residential broadband plans in recent years. This trend is certainly true for Stokes, with common Internet choices like Suddenlink adding capped plans. It's not a large issue for the majority of residents, but it is liable to affect users that share their connection with multiple other household members or "power users" who consume a lot of 4K video. Data caps on cable bundles tend to be about 1 Terabyte. This is a problem for fewer than one percent of Internet users, according to reports from Xfinity. Suddenlink Communications customers in Stokes should confirm data use policies before signing a contract.
