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.
