Download Cap

 A download cap is simply a broadband package monthly download limit. 

Broadband packages which do not offer unlimited downloads will have a fixed monthly download allowance, or cap.  This is the amount of data that can be downloaded in one month. Allowances could be anything from 2 GB to 40GB, or Unlimited (almost always including a fair use policy which means it is not truly unlimited). Aollowances are usually given in Gigs, GB, or gigabytes.

Remember that a GB download allowance refers to an amount of data, not the download speed transfer rate.
