Data Caps Around South Heart
Data from our market research team suggests that some of the common providers in the area place some sort of limit on data use for their residential broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue because consumers view them as a strategy to stop streaming. Providers insist that data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can use 1–7GB per hour.
