I can't check for you but here's what you look for.

1. Do you use Netflix or other streaming video services? Look at both for DATA CAPS. Video eats a lot of data. I'm lucky as https://www.dslreports.com/forum/charter has no cap. That does NOT mean it is unlimited. I will NOT enter into a discussion about that as some feel entitled.

2. Both offer various plans but without indication about your use, I can't write much more.

If you get capped.

Consider limiting your streaming to 1080p. Netflix writes about 5 megabits a second for that and 25 megabits to play UHD 4K w/HD audio.

I send my UHD 4K TV the 1080p stream and it looks great to me.
