Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Gretna

Data from our market research team shows that popular providers place a limit on data use for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are disliked because subscribers see caps as a tactic to discourage "cord cutting". Providers explain that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is streaming video, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.
