    Default New Shaw packages

    http://www.shaw.ca/Internet/New-Data-Usage/

    What's interesting is the fact that you have to bundle them with TV, and they become available in 3 days.
    Oh, and they can't offer 50 Mbps or higher in SSM since we are not upgraded yet...

    Those are going to be some WILD speeds once the upgrades are done.
    I can't wait to see how close they come to actually hitting them.

    I would say not close, that's a huge increase in bandwidth for a network.

    Agreed. It is quite a large investment in their infrastructure. It looks as though they have realized that they will need to increase their bandwidth in the near future with the increases in internet demand. Maybe they have just decided to upgrade now and lead the way instead of falling behind and trying to catch up.
    Either way, consumers are the ones who will stan to benefit.

    How did you get that? I tried forever to get it and they kept telling me they don't offer it in Sault Ste Marie.

    And that is where I went less than 2 months ago and they told me they don't offer it.
    I will pay them a visit next week.
    Did you sign up online or just walked in and sign up at the office?
