is shaw screwing me over? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
How would i manage that...

I get like 650-700kb/s with IE DM, i use accelerated downloading (segmented) in Getright and i get about 800-825kb/s

What exactly is IE DM? We're talking about IDM.

I believe this program uses 15 connections all at once, basically nothing can beat it's speed.

You must be doing it wrong.

I dont know about shaw. But charter only guarantees download speed for 5 minuets. Gotta read the fine print.
Worse than crack.

telus was 10mibts slower then shaw(advertised) but from usage, shaw seems to be slower 90% of the time.


*sometimes when i pause and resume downloads, they go much faster.
I'm just going outright and skipping to the badumpshish...

Go to http://secure.shaw.ca , use ur login info, or create one. Check your most recent bill if any. Identify if you are on HIGH SPEED, or EXTREME.

I'm on HS, and I get the bump to 2.7mb (megabyte*) per second for a short bit, then grace back down to 1-1.2mb.

Also, not to ask much, but pm me the mac on ur mdm, I can tell ya if u were setup properly or not (signal strength good/bad/plain ugly). (IF THIS line breaches anything on oc.net i'll gladly delete it asap if issue is there, it's to save the guy $$, service calls, and hassles).

I'm more then happy to help ya fix this better... I used to be a TSR for shaw for almost 2.6yrs...

Im not sure how getright does it, but they segment it into 4 parts (if you buy the retail version you can do alot more)

shaw i know back in the day would throttle down everyone's internet during peak hours and on off hours speeds would be really high, this could be the case but i'm unsure if shaw still does this as i haven't had an issue i've noticed with them for a while now

For awhile they literally had a max of 42mbps on some hub's, no joke... They've got alot more headroom now, which is why they mass offer nitro 100mbps... But was rather funny... myself and 2 other guys in neighbourhood usually overnight max'd it... and I'd win... ^_^
