The Data Cap Integrity Act, also called the Data Measurement Integrity Act,[1] is a bill introduced in the United States Senate by Senator Ron Wyden.[2] The bill would require Internet service providers that have bandwidth caps to only apply caps on service to reduce network congestion rather than discourage Internet use,[2] count all data usage equally toward caps, regardless of its source or content,[2][3] and use a standard method of metering data use, which is to be defined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).[2] The FCC would also be required to provide software to allow users to monitor their bandwidth usage.[2]
