Re: [BC] Phase 2 and DNU.

It is pretty easy to tell if DNU is done in your area. Go to Shaw.ca and see what internet packages are available for your area....

No, that isn't accurate either...

250 mbps is available in Strathmore, but DNU hasn't happened there yet either (or hadn't happened yet when I was there but 250 was available).

Easist way to tell, is if you have full cable (tiers 1, 2, or 3) connect a TV to analog cable, and see if you can get the tiers channels. If you don't have Tiers 1, 2, or 3 you shouldn't be able to see the channels in analog either though.

The DNU *has* happened in my area (analog gone, which is kinda a bummer because we used it for FM), but I don't have access to updated tiers.

No idea why that is, but there you have it.

FM dissipeared long before DNU happened in most areas.

FM disappeared for me roughly around the same time (within a week or two), I just assumed it was due to the DNU, i guess that might not be the case though.

This isn't quite right as there are a lot of steps to DNU. First the analogue Tier 1,2,3 channels have to be removed (they are already being sent in digital as well). Then if the CMTS equipment is ready, within a short period of time some of the channels can be re-purposed for additional internet tiers.

And remove most/all of the tier filters from non-full cable customers, this is a pretty important one...
