Data Caps Around Royal City

Data collected by our researchers suggests that many of the common providers place some sort of limit on streaming for their home broadband connections. Data caps are a public issue since consumers view them as a strategy to discourage streaming services. Providers maintain they are a reasonable strategy for managing heavy network congestion. Either way, the issue is streaming video, which easily eats up 1–7GB/hour.
