Data Caps on Ada Internet Plans

Internet companies have decided to add "data caps" to consumer broadband plans recently. This market trend is certainly true in Ada, with local Internet companies such as Sparklight featuring plans with data caps. This might not really matter for the majority of Internet users, but it is liable to affect users that download or upload a large amount of HD or 4K content. Caps on cable packages tend to be in the neighborhood of one Terabyte. This is way more than is used by 99% of users. Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers are advised to confirm data caps before signing a contract, and not assume them based soley on statements online.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Ada

Better than other ISPs, I guess.

The speed and price are nothing special but I've had worse. Frequent short outages. Not a month goes by where service doesn't mysteriously disappear for a block of at least an hour, occasionally all day, with no notice. Their cable TV division also apparently had a row with Viacom because they were raising their fees and dropped their channels; so Viacom decided to block the I.P. addresses of all of their subscribers, whether they had TV or not; this meant I couldn't (still can't) watch Daily Show on its website, even though I don't even buy cable TV! (Fortunately I was able to work-around with Hulu.) Just the usual nonsense in this poorly regulated industry.
