I wonder if they would charge you anything to switch over.(Aside from 
the necessary hardware change costs.) It's not like you're stopping 
your service.

 From past messages MLPP, even if not used, kills traffic shaping.

Do you have any reason to believe cable would (not?) be shaped?

Speaking of cable: I recently heard that Rogers is managing TV 
bandwidth (during the day?). HD shows are coming through very well, 
pixelation, and the like. Presumably giving the bandwidth to business 
internet users. TV quality goes back up in the evening.

Is this fiction?

And would not Teksavvy cable be subject to the same issues?
