Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Fort Atkinson

Data from our researchers suggests that common ISPs in the area place some sort of limit on data use on home Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since users view them as a tactic for limiting streaming. Providers maintain they are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which can use anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.
