Internet providers have decided to impose data "plans" to their home Internet packages as of late. The trend holds true in the Cisco market, with common Internet companies such as Suddenlink featuring plans with data caps. It's not a large issue for the majority of Internet users, but is liable to be an issue for subscribers who share the WiFi or "power users" who download or upload a lot of high-def video. Caps on cable packages tend to be in the neighborhood of 1 Terabyte. This is an issue for less than 1% of customers, according to reports from Comcast. Potential Suddenlink Communications customers are advised to verify data use policies when signing up, and not presume them based soley on online statements.
