Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Galeton

Data collected by our researchers shows that many of the common providers in the area use data caps on residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers view caps as a tactic to limit "cord cutting", while providers explain data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic.
