Data Caps Among Belle ISPs
Internet companies have begun to impose "data caps" to residential broadband packages as of late. This trend is certainly true for Belle, with Internet choices like Suddenlink adding capped plans. It's not a major concern for the majority of customers, but can be an issue for those that share their connection with family or "power users" who upload a lot of high-def content. Data caps with cable bundles are usually in the neighborhood of one Terabyte, which is a problem for less than 1% of Internet users. Potential Suddenlink Communications customers should double check data limits before signing a contract. Do not presume them based on phone rep statements.
