Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Suffolk

Data collected by our market research team shows that top providers in Suffolk currently use data caps on home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial since customers view them as a strategy for limiting streaming. Providers explain they are a necessary strategy for managing heavy network congestion.
