  1. By the way guys, I may lose phone service after the 18th for a week or two. Can not pay the bill until the 29th and normal collections gets stupid.
    I think I will change my plan to just phone and what I need to get WiFi in town to reduce costs. Contract up in June so am looking to another provider then. In the US all over long distance and 10 Gb data is about $50/month. Here long distance with 5Gb is about $90 to $110CDN 7Gb is $115 to $120. Fackin thieves!
