Data Caps in Lerona

Many Internet companies have begun to add data limits onto residential broadband plans as of late. This trend is certainly true in the Lerona market, with common ISPs like Suddenlink advertising capped plans. It's not a major issue for the majority of customers, but is liable to affect subscribers that share their service with household members or "power users" who consume a lot of HD or 4K content. Caps with cable packages tend to be about one Terabyte. This is a problem for less than one percent of customers. Potential Suddenlink Communications customers should confirm data use policies before signing up, and not assume them based on online statements.
