welcome :wave

Bell put up a new satellite which pretty much covers only Canada and a few border states
http://www.satelliteguys.us/canadia...286726-91w-nimiq-6-completely-active-now.html

and a more technical aspect
Bell has just launched its new NIMIQ 6 satellite to 91 West, creating a reduced coverage area that is even more limited than that of NIMIQ 4 at 82 West. If you are more than 150 to 200 miles from Canadian soil, it will be next to impossible to keep reliable service, even on a mid-sized (3-4 foot) Ku-band antenna.

The reality of this situation is that Bell simply does not want to deal with Canadian snowbirds that are vacationing outside of Canada, or anyone else in the U.S. They have repeatedly taken steps to shed customers that they cannot control, and this latest move is the final step in physically limiting the coverage of their service.
