Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Linville

Data from our research team suggests that top providers place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are disliked because users view them as a strategy to limit video streaming, while providers insist data caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. Either way, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
