Data Cap Issues Around Foster

Data from our researchers shows that some of the common ISPs in the area currently place a limit on streaming for their home broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue lately because consumers see them as a strategy for limiting streaming, while providers maintain they are a necessary strategy for managing network traffic. Either way, the culprit is the same: video streaming, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes/hour.
