Data Caps in Bath

Data collected by our market researchers shows that common ISPs in the area use data caps for their home Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue since customers see them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic.
