Data Cap Issues Around Fort Meade

Data collected by our market researchers shows that common ISPs in Fort Meade use data caps for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because users see caps as a tactic for limiting streaming services, while providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
