Data Cap Issues Around Utica

Data collected by our market research team suggests that popular providers currently use data caps on home broadband packages. Data caps are disliked since subscribers view caps as a strategy for limiting streaming services, while providers maintain that data caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network congestion. In either case, the culprit is streaming video, which can use one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
