Data Cap Issues in Sutton

Data collected by our research team shows that some of the common ISPs in the area use data caps on residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial because users view caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers explain they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which can use one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
