Shaw internet is shitShaw's internet connection is terrible. It constantly keeps disconnecting and it's just bad in general because the ping is super high even when the minimum is supposed to be at least 70 and it's most of the time 200 above.

I've been a dedicated customer for over a decade and you guys have treated me like a second-class citizen I am so appalled at the way I've been treated I've been a loyal customer and just can't get over the lock of support I've got from you guys and the under-educated customer service reps you have appalled disgusted I don't know how you keep in business

Shaw Customer Service is non-existentI have just spent the last 1 1/2 on chat with Shaw. Even though their website says the best way to contact them is chat, I was told by the employee I was chatting with I should have phoned if I wanted to talk to a person and get one on one help. Basically the end result was Shaw can remove a channel from your package without discounting the price, then charge you for every channel you add after that. After all that time and three people telling me to try this, try that, I get told I have to phone or contact someone in the morning to get the problem fixed. Customer service stinks.

They used to be very good. After late Shaw , their founder, it seems they chose to go to a different path.
As per my exp. when a company starts to treat clients like this, it is the beginning of their end.
They used to treat loyal clients very well. That is not the case any more.

Shaw internet has been around for many years now having been founded back in 1971. They are one of the few telecommunication providers to have been operating in Canada for over four decades.
Shaw's headquarters are at 2400 32nd Avenue NE Calgary, Alberta T2E 6T4 Canada.
Their veteran status in the telecommunication world makes them one of going to companies for customers when looking for proper internet services. Shaw’s community involvement in the past has resulted in contributions totaling up to $400 million for donation funds. Let us now conduct a GoneVoIP review of Shaw’s home internet plans.
Shaw offers a good mix of download speeds from their Cable network backbone.

No details of overage charges were mentioned on the 15 and 100 Mbps plans page or the terms and conditions. The charges that Shaw is implementing is typical of one incumbent Telecom giant. Applying a monthly discount for twenty-four months if under a 2-year contract. However big these discounts do not compensate for over-inflated pricing. We were also disappointed to find that there is no unlimited usage for the lower tier plans. Unlimited usage has become very important and used more as Canadian households grow connected.
Shaw's Home internet may very well be extremely reputable, and it comes with a nice bundle with a Wireless modem and McAfee Internet Security. Though quality and pricing are not enough to back up their grand claims. All in, GoneVoIP respects Shaw's history but they definitively need to put unlimited to all and tone down pricing, from the get-go. Applying discounts is old school, and distort true value.

Avoid the Modem Rental Trap
Many of us have struggled with this item at the time we are shopping for internet service: the modem. The idea of a non-technical person making a determination. The typical mindset has always been around, rent along with the service provider. Now internet providers are also including 'whole home internet' or Managed Wi-Fi services, providing the modem and Wi-Fi router. All at added expenses.
However that bundling, while making it easier in appearance make no mistake is a cash-grab by the
How to file a complaint against a Provider
If you feel you have a valid complaint against your telecom provider, you are not alone. According to an article in the Financial Post complaint rates rose dramatically in 2017-2018 by a staggering 57%.
In fact, the Commission for Complaints for Telecom-television Services (CCTS) reported even more startling numbers with a 75% increase in complaints between August 2017 and January 2018.
Most issues revolve around non-disclosure and people finding that their contracts have been inaccurately outlined by provider representatives. GoneVoIP offers an
