The top download speed advertised for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps, while HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps.

Data Caps in Francis

Many Internet companies have decided to add "data caps" onto consumer broadband plans in recent years. This trend holds true for the Francis market, with local ISPs like Sparklight adding plans with data caps. It's not a large concern for most Internet subscribers, but it is liable to be an issue for users who share their service or techies who download or upload a large amount of high-def video. Caps with cable packages are generally in the neighborhood of one Terabyte. This is more than 99 percent of customers use. Potential Sparklight (formerly Cable One) customers are advised to confirm data use policies when signing up, and not presume them based on phone rep statements.
