What do you need?

It's a SBAS system compatible with WAAS and MSAS. It provides 
diffrential data which improves L1 C/A receivers positioning and timing. 
Using one of the L1 C/A correlators corrections for the other 
correlators can be retrieved while the geostationary satellite can also 
be tracked.

Modern receivers should have SBAS support, but it may not look like it 
on many receivers.

It has been in place for many years, but the "opening" is more about 
them achieving the system status they was aiming for.
