Some larger centres are suffering too. Since it has been a long time since the Halifax system has been upgraded, the city is missing 19 HD channels that most of the rest of the province has(and I suspect this will rise as more HD channels are added to other areas and not Halifax), and I have no idea as to when, or if, this situation will be addressed. Halifax is at capacity now, with no room for new channels. Ironically, Halifax is the "head office" for Eastlink, but I guess that doesn't mean anything.
I switched to Bell a bit over a year ago, and any return to Eastlink is contingent upon them addressing the Halifax situation. My thought is that Eastlink simply doesn't want to put the money into upgrading Halifax, since it would be expensive. Some folks have mentioned the possibility of Halifax going "all digital" as a solution, but I remain skeptical.
