Data Caps in Plains

Data collected by our market researchers shows that many of the popular ISPs use data caps on home Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since consumers see caps as a strategy to discourage "cord cutting", while providers explain data caps are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the culprit is video streaming, which can eat up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
