Data Cap Issues in Valley Springs

Data collected by our research team shows that common providers in Valley Springs place a limit on data use on residential broadband plans. Data caps are disliked because consumers view caps as a tactic to discourage "cord cutting", while providers explain caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the culprit is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can use 1–7GB/hr.
