    Bandwidth or data?
    I can see data being unlimited, bandwidth would not be unlimited.

    They web page says they offer cable 150 for my postal code, unlimited for $99.95/month.
    I am a bit skeptical because they would have to use the same cable infrastructure that Shaw uses to provide me that service. Shaw 120 would be $20/month more and limited to 750 GB/month.

    I am going to e-mail them, as it would be cheaper and faster if they can truly provide me that service for $100/month. The unlimited is what I am really after, but 150 down would be a bonus.

    Hans: How did you make out?? My understanding is they do use the cable from Shaw , they must pay some kind of fee(rent)

    I e-mailed them 2 days ago, still have not received an answer.
    My concern with them is they have to use Shaw infrastructure, and was far as I know Shaw has never allowed a re seller to offer different packages than Shaw.

    Nada. I would say that is not a good sign.
