WASHINGTON (CNN) – It’s Netflix versus internet service providers!
The streaming service is asking the FCC to push companies to end the practice of data caps, calling it unreasonable and unfair.
Comcast and other home internet providers offer consumers plans with data limits, the more data you want to use, the more it costs.
Netflix says the average American needs an allotment of 300 gigabytes of data per month to meet its internet television needs.
Netflix claims data-limited plans discourage people from using broadband and watching internet television whenever they want to.
Netflix is also going after the low data caps that cellphone companies offer.
