    Default Internet and Cable - Shaw or Telus?

    Hi,

    What's everyone paying for internet and cable? Obviously the cable portion can be variable depending on what you watch but I just want to get a feel of what everyone is paying to make sure I negotiate a good price. Currently with Shaw but open to switching to Telus.

    Telus Fibre-to-the-home. If that's available in your area, that's what you want.

    If you do decide to switch to TELUS, let me know, and I can hook you up with a bill credit on your first bill in addition to the stacking discounts. The only catch is you have to notify me first so I can put you into the system and get you in touch with the right people.

    Shaw, 660 Mbps unlimited internet, same $85/mo deal that everyone got. No cable/phone.

    I would switch/upgrade if either company ever brings gigabit/fiber to my area.

    We just went with the Shaw 150 internet, Small TV package with no home phone = $100/month for 2 years. Comes with PVR and one extra box. It's their BlueCurve TV package now. Something like that anyway. We were with Telus and this cut our bill in half.

    It's fine for what we use. Not huge users of internet, and we don't watch a lot of strange or hard to get shows.

    Looked mine up, I have "youpick 6" plus "internet 75" and my bill is a combined $137/mo. Probably could be less, but that Fibre to the home is amazing. I beat 75 both of upload and download 24/7/365. Usually around 90 mbps for both.

    TELUS 150 fiber here but my pricing includes a 40% employee discount, thought about going to 300 but really have no need for it. Always get 175+ up and down and it's rock solid

    was on Shaw 300MB for 85$ until next year but Shaw called me and offered 300MB again + 2 Bluesky TV box for the same price for another 2 years.

    Shaw 300 on the $60 / 2 yr plan that was offered last year. Telus is way too slow to build out their fiber network so they won't get my business back until that happens.

    Shaw 600 and cable for $105 a month.

    We don't use cable anymore but we only save $10 a month if we went with the internet.

    nice, I see them on FB all the time but was a little weary on whether it was a scam or not.
    I'll PM you for the name of the rep that you used.

    Telus will have better pricing if you have FTTH.
    These are plans I have been able to get within the last year.

    My home:
    Telus 750/750 with unlimited - $40/month
    Optik TV with 15 theme packs and 3 boxes (1 pvr) - $65/month
    Also got a $200 initial credit. Discounts are good till end of 2021 but it's not on a term.

    Parents:
    Shaw 600/20 - $55/month
    Bluesky Small TV with some Asian channels and 2 boxes (1 pvr) - $55/month
    This is a 2 year bundle so it's on a 2 year term.

    Aunts:
    Telus 75/15 (all copper, fastest available) - $45/month
    Essential TV pick 6 with 3 boxes (1 pvr) - $45/month
    This was also a 2 year term discount. She was paying $80/month for internet 15 only before I called in.

    My parents and my aunt live in the same community maybe 7 blocks from each other but because of the infrastructure my aunt has limited choices for service and plans.

    That's a pretty big difference between you and your aunt but it makes sense considering her location.

    Telus 750 sounds amazing.
