[Shaw.ca] Shaw Canada Upgrading Service Next Month - Page 6

post #51 of 62
Nice. They just gave out small upgrades in my area; been downloading movies from Megaupload at 4.8MBps lately, which is quite nice. Can't wait to get myself a 100Mbps connection.

This should put a huge amount of pressure on Hell Canada - with what, Shaw dishing out a hundred times the speed and fifteen times the cap even on their cheeziest plan, when compared to a Hell plan of the same cost. Plus, 50GB extra for $5 - sure beats the extra $2.50 per fraction of a GB overage. I suppose the only question is whether Shaw throttles and performs deep packet inspections to the same extend that Hell and Fraudger's engage in...

Holy. ****. Is anyone else looking at the Phase 2 Unlimited 250 plan? 250 mbps down and 15 up with unlimited bandwidth. Holy ****. I think I get 25mbps down with Cox at their max tier. I would kill for speeds like that. Though I suppose I would need a new router and modem....

shaw loans all their modems for free

The only issue I have with shaw is their deep packet inspection and traffic shaping. Telus on the other hand has made a firm stance against this and is still net neutral.

Shot an email to Cox (who has a monopoly on my area) asking what they thought about this. I was informed that they had just rolled out a 50 down, 5 up, then dodged the question.

It seems to be an unlikely prospect in the US at the moment. I miss Fios...

So hopefully, they will do the same for me? Cause I am an Xtreme user.

Is there no future equivalent to Shaw high speed? It seems all the other plans are more expensive.

Come to Kitchener!

though my $40/mo 15/1 Acanac is nicer than my old 50/2 rogers. Far more stable speeds and it's unlimited. Plus I'm actually getting 26/1 hehe

Since Shaw isn't available in Toronto, it's the next best thing (besides TekSavvy)
Prices are best. Service is the worst.
