Data Cap Issues in Cardinal
Data from our market research team suggests that some of the top providers in Cardinal currently place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are a public issue since users view them as a tactic for limiting video streaming, while providers insist caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the issue is the same: over-the-top streaming services, which easily eats up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
