Why does SECV have monthly Internet data plans?

SECV’s data plans protect the vast majority of Internet customers from subsidizing the minority of heaviest users.  Impacting less than 2% of customers, SECV’s data usage plan helps ensure that extremely high data-usage users do not negatively impact other customers using SECV's broadband network.  Bandwidth consumption overall has increased 50% each year for the past two years.  Despite multi-million dollar investments in our network, it is still necessary to implement a data usage plan comparable to that of other Internet providers.
