Internet Providers with Data Caps

Enter your zip code to see all of the internet providers in your area including which have data caps and which don't.

Every Internet Provider We've Found Offering Plans With Data Caps

This table includes every broadband Internet provider currently using "data caps" to limit Internet usage. As of Nov 19, 2017, we have 202 providers with data caps in our database.

To help make sense of this data, we have also included the number of customers served by each provider so you can see how many people are affected by data limits.

If your Internet provider is on this list, we recommend that you monitor your data usage — particularly if you frequently stream video or download/upload large files.

This data is continously updated as our data team collects and updates plans from providers. When we have recorded multiple plans for a provider with differing data caps we show their data cap as a range. If a provider has a data cap listed that does not mean it applies to all of their plans or all of their regions, just that we've found them advertising at least one plan with a data cap.

Why Data Caps Exist

Data caps have emerged in recent years as a way for Internet providers to police bandwidth usage on their networks. Rather than letting everyone use the "pipe" as much as they want, the broadband industry in the US seems to be moving towards a "pay as you go" model where customers who use more data than other will have to pay extra for it.

Statements from Internet providers suggest that data caps are a necessary step to combat network congestion. Opponents of data caps believe that the motivation for data caps has more to do with recovering declining cable revenue or creating a roadblock for streaming services like Netflix. Whichever side you believe, the outcome is the same — data caps are becoming commonplace.

When you shop for an Internet plan, keep in mind that Internet providers often advertise their data caps as "data plans" or "data limits."

What Happens if you Go Over a Data Cap

Customers who go over the limit set by their provider usually have to pay a fee or purchase additional data on top of their base rate. Additional data purchases are usually handled “a la carte” style, in add-on bundles of 10GB or so.

Some Internet providers provide digital meters for checking how much data you’ve used in a given month. Others do not and only show data use information if their records show you’ve gone over the limit.

In some rare cases, a customer’s service may be terminated if the provider determines that they are breaking their service agreement.

How We Collect this Data

Our data cap information is collected regularly by our full-time research team. This page is automatically updated when we notice changes on Internet provider websites during the routine collection of specific broadband Internet, TV, and phone plans.

All the data shown on this page is based directly on Internet provider websites, information from company call centers, and other official marketing materials. We are unable to display data cap information for plans that are not publicly listed, or that we have not been able to pull into our database for some other reason.

Note: If you are an internet service provider on this list and you believe your company shouldn't be included here please send us a note via our contact form. Once we verify that the plans listed on your website no longer include data caps, we'll remove you from this list. This is particularly useful if you have just updated your plans, otherwise our data team will probably update it once they revisit your site to check plans.
