Data Caps on Shannock Internet Plans
Many Internet providers have begun to add "data caps" to their home broadband packages as of late. This market trend holds true in the Shannock market, with Internet choices like Cox selling capped plans. It's not a major issue for most customers, but might affect those who download a lot of high-def content. If you have concerns about living under a set amount of data use, look for fiber plans at your address using the search bar at the top of this page. Fiber is often higher priced, but can provide unlimited data without throttling since the fiber line doesn't share limited bandwidth like cable and DSL.
