Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting in Ponce

Data from our researchers suggests that some of the popular ISPs currently use data caps on residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue since users view them as a strategy to stop video streaming, while providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the problem is streaming services, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
