Actually, it has been communicated to the field, at least within my AOR anyway, through the chain, that this is coming.
As for payment, the hosting is being provided to CAP at no cost.
Your AOR isn't "all GLR". As of today, nothing has been communicated in this regard. If there is a plan or idea, and
you have details, feel free to share, otherwise, advising someone in another Wing and Region that there is some
sort of national plan already in process that will force a platform choice simply isn't cricket.
And as soon as you start saying that NHQ will provide the hosting for 1300 charters, that's a scale that probably isn't
going to be in place any time soon, if ever.
