Data Cap Issues Around Harrisville

Data from our market research team shows that many of the top ISPs in Harrisville use data caps for their home broadband plans. Data caps are disliked because customers see caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers maintain that caps are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic.
