Data Cap Issues in Ellinger

Data from our researchers shows that common providers in the area currently place some sort of limit on data use on residential Internet plans. Data caps are controversial because consumers view them as a tactic to limit streaming services, while providers maintain they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion.
