Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Rural Ridge

Data collected by our researchers suggests that common ISPs in Rural Ridge use data caps for their home Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because customers view them as a tactic to stop streaming services. Providers maintain they are a necessary tool for managing heavy network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: video streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
