Maybe I am just missing something obvious.
The Shaw go WiFi web page says that you can have Automatic device login by registering your mobile devices.
There is a pop up to check your Mobile device allowance against your Shaw Internet package.
Both the plan I was on, Extreme, and the plan Shaw stealth converted me to when I accepted a "free" PVR in a moment of weakness, High Speed 25, supposedly allow 6 devices. At least that is how I interpret "You can register to automatically connect 6 mobile devices to the Shaw Go WiFi Trial"
When I log into my account in the Shaw Customer Centre, then select Shaw Exo WiFi Trial I am told that I have added 3 of 3 devices. And the following text is shown below the list of MAC addresses I have previously connected from.
Your Shaw plan allows you to add a maximum of 3 devices.
If you have more devices that you would like to activate,
visit Shaw.ca and upgrade your plan
Can I really add my devices in advance, or must I login to Shaw Open when I stumble across the access points out in the wild?
