So, looking at the big picture, Hampton's broadband infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in Tennessee towns and cities: wide coverage for cable and DSL Internet service, but limited choice since most houses are stuck with a single option for either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that most Broadband Internet companies have their roots as TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they use pre-existing copper networks to deliver their Internet service.

Data Cap Issues in Hampton

Data collected by our research team suggests that some of the top ISPs currently place some sort of limit on data use on residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked since subscribers see caps as a strategy to limit "cord cutting". Providers explain data caps are a necessary strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
