Data Cap Issues and Cord Cutting in Caputa

Data from our market researchers shows that many of the popular ISPs place some sort of limit on streaming on home Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since customers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
