I think your right on rdehaven. When I try to turn on my 630 in Oct SD might try charging me another HAFH fee. If this happens I'm gone.
The new system is called 2nd Home, and will charge grandfathered customers 50% in comparison to 75% on top of their current bill for a second (confirmed) location.
If you are going into the United States, you can pretty much kiss all reception goodbye, as they've blacked out the beam in that area (for the most part). If you want to temporarily get around the system, you'll have to stick with the current technology (not G1) and ride it out until you can't bare it anymore.
It sucks, but Shaw's hand was partly forced by the CRTC and cable companies. At least it was fun while it lasted.
