Data Caps and Video Streaming in Waterville

Data collected by our researchers suggests that some of the common ISPs in the area use data caps for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because consumers see caps as a strategy to limit "cord cutting". Providers maintain caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. Either way, the culprit is streaming services, which can consume 1–7GB per hour.
