      They obviously realized this would open the door to users using their own routers legally. Still, there are not many companies that will give lifetime warranties on devices. The cost to them over the years is bound to be huge.

      There are different briefings it seems. CST have been advised OOW routers charges aren't going to come into affect at all. However, some other staff have been told it will happen eventually. I don't know what to believe, personally.

      P.S. If anyone wants to send a cheque with a sufficient amount of cash to myself, I'll give you your username and password and even set you on fastpath/fastpath if you wish?!

      P.P.S. I am completely joking
