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.
