Data Cap Issues in Hitchcock

Data from our market research team suggests that many of the top ISPs in the area use data caps on residential Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since consumers view them as a tactic for limiting video streaming. Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the problem is the same: video streaming, which easily uses 1–7GB per hour.
