Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Hope

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the top providers in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since users view caps as a strategy to limit streaming. Providers insist that they are a necessary strategy for managing heavy network traffic.
