Data Caps in Berkey

Data collected by our market research team suggests that some of the common providers in the area currently place some sort of limit on data use for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are disliked since subscribers view them as a strategy to stop streaming services, while providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
