Coverage data is cross-validated through private databases and direct provider reporting to provide more detailed resources than is available from government websites. Address availability data isn't available for all providers, but all ISPs are shown here, down to a census block level. Information about pricing and speed of specific Internet plans is sourced by manually collecting thousands of plans annually.

Data Caps in Prospect

Data from our researchers shows that top providers place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue because users see them as a strategy to stop "cord cutting". Providers maintain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the issue is video streaming, which can consume 1–7GB/hr.
