Data Cap Issues in Zahl

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that many of the top ISPs in Zahl use data caps on home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because users view caps as a strategy to stop video streaming, while providers maintain they are a necessary tool for managing network traffic.
