Data Cap Issues Around Russia

Data from our research team suggests that top providers in the area currently place a limit on data use for their home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because subscribers view them as a tactic for limiting streaming, while providers explain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic.
