Data Caps and Video Streaming in Wilson

Data from our research team suggests that top ISPs in Wilson currently use data caps for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because customers see them as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers maintain data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
