Not Shaw. $50 gets you 120GB at 7.5 MBit, but Shaw won't charge you if you go over, so its effectively unlimited. $75 gets you 400GB at 50 MBit, and if you go over they won't charge you per gigabyte or drop your speeds to dial up, they'll just bump you up to the next tier for the rest of the month, so you get 500GB at 100 MBit for an extra $10. If you still go over they'll bump it up the next tier, which is another $10 for an extra 250 GB, or a respectable 4 cents/GB.


Suck it America.

I pay $100 for 200GB at 10mbps (DSL). Quit yer complaining. (But I do also get a static IP and uploads are unmetered, meaning they don't count towards my quota)
