Data Caps and Cord Cutting in Forest Hill

Data collected by our market research team suggests that some of the popular providers in the area place some sort of limit on streaming for their residential Internet connections. Data caps are controversial since consumers see them as a tactic to limit streaming, while providers explain data caps are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. In either case, the problem is video streaming, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB/hour.
