Data Caps Around Altamont

Data from our market research team shows that some of the common ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on data use on residential Internet plans. Data caps are a public issue since customers see caps as a strategy to discourage streaming, while providers maintain they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage heavy network traffic. Either way, the problem is streaming video, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
