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 in 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 GoneVoIP review of Shaw’s home internet plans.
Shaw offers a good mix of download speeds from their Cable network backbone.
- Internet 15: 15 Mbps Download, 1.5 Mbps Upload, 150 GB Usage at $79 per month
- Internet 75: 75 Mbps Download, 7.5 Mbps Upload, 500 GB Usage at $89 per month
- Internet 300: 300 Mbps Download, 15 Mbps Upload, Unlimited Usage at $110 per month
- Internet 600: 600 Mbps Download, 20 Mbps Upload, Unlimited Usage at $120 per month
No details of overage charges were mentioned on the 15 and 75 Mbps plans page or the terms and conditions. The charges that Shaw is implementing is typical of the incumbent Telecom giant. Applying a meager $4 per month discount for eighteen months in the 15 Mbps and 75 Mbps if under a 2-year contract. The first 6 months are with a better $29 discount. In the 300 Mbps and 600 Mbps, the discount is of $15 dollars for eighteen months. The first 6 months are with a $65 discount. However big these discount do not compensate for the 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's household 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.
