Yeah I've decided to stick with Shaw for now. After the events of the last 9 days I've decided to ease off on my grudge as well. My view of Shaw as a business hasn't changed but life is too short to stress myself out so much. (My friends sudden passing at 45 has me self analyzing a lot lately.)
I'd probably play the Shaw/Telus game if Telus didn't charge for overages.
My only real concern is
the data caps. Ok, and price of course. It was why I wanted to go with Juce so bad, win-win on both counts.
Apparently Shaw has fixed their usage meter. Though with DD-WRT flashed to my E1200 I can monitor it directly through that.
So any future decisions about switching providers will be made on how my usage pans out over the next while as I plan to monitor it for a while while I save to once again look to the Secured Visa route.
I have my ATA but FreePhoneLine does not accept Visa Debit nor Paypal. CC only! I've also set my 54G up as a client bridge so I can connect the ATA to it then I can leave my phone; modem and router where they are currently. (Opposite walls in the room.)
My intent is still to lower my monthly costs by leaving Shaw eventually but I'm not in the same rush I was last week. It's going to cost me money to save money.
Such is life.
Thanks again TechGuy8 for the FreePhoneLine and ATA suggestion. I'm looking forward to getting that up and running. I like to play with hardware (I've built every computer I've owned myself.) as well as learn new things.
