    Do you not have cable with them, as well?

    I don't have cable. Cut that out years ago. Today my bill is $59 pre tax for Fibre+ 300.

    I should add that they also have the following on offer:

    Fibre+ 500: $75
    Fibre+ Gig $85
    Fibre+ Gig 1.5 $115

    All on 2 year plan.

    I pay a discounted rate until Dec 2023 for Fibre+ 750 at $78.75 total.

    The upload speeds of Shaw vs. Telus are night and day though.

    Good reminder for all of us to check our bills and threaten to switch once our incentives expire. Nobody should be paying anything close to full price for these services.
    I pay $112 for my Telus 150 internet plus TV (4 theme packs + Netflix )
    My incentive expire in December, I will check back around black friday.

    You are fine unless Onlyfans is your primary income.

    That’s why I went with a reseller. Still paying 49.95 for 300mbit cable through Lightspeed. Been almost 5 years and never had to bug them as it’s just the plans price and they haven’t raised my rates yet.

    Shaw has 100 meg upload now on some of their higher plans. Though I think it’s only in some areas. Your 750 plan should have 100 upload now.

    Well it is. What do you have to say for yourself now!

    Shaw tops out at 100 vs Telus at 2,500. Ummm

    100 upload would be fine for me. As it is, my 150 plan routinely gets 175/175 speed test results, even when others on the network are using netflix, youtube etc. Honestly, seems to be a cap per device not per house, not sure. Maybe it's prioritizin speedtest traffic somehow? Don't think so thought.
    That's one reason I don't pay for 300 or higher. Don't see any need, my actual 175 per device is never saturated.

    It's the magic of duplex routing.

    I got the 85 gig deal last month. Of course Telus is digging up our yard for fiber this week.

    I have the same plan until mid 2024. Hopefully Telus installs fibre in my hood by then.

    Shaw is rolling out infrastructure upgrades right now, I assume to keep up with Telus' Fibre. The tech mentioned that Shaw has already upgraded some communities to the latest version, and Killarney was one of the first. Eventually he said, anyone with regular cable (ie: older folks) will find that their cable doesn't work anymore and everything will be dedicated to internet usage.

    They need to swap to a Docsis 4.0 modem to still get service, yeah. It's going to be a huge upgrade for Shaw but also pretty hefty rollout as every modem needs to be replaced as part of it. Pretty sure it'll break my Lightspeed internet which I'm going to be grumpy about.

    I don’t think docsis 4 products are officially out yet. Just still in testing. Last I heard the big bump is speed is docsis 3.1 which is what Shaw is upgrading everyone to the last few years. That’ll allow 1gbit uploads which really is just bragging rights. Unless you’re a YouTuber or something.

    I’m a super heavy user, my kids have a small YouTube channel and I’ve been 100% ok with the 100mbit upload.

    I'm paying $115 for Shaw's Fibre+ gig service. Called them today and she kept telling me there are no promotions going on, at least for my account, and she can't do fuck all...but hey, if I want, they can upgrade me to Fiber+ 1.5 for extra $9/month. I was like yo, I'm calling you to try and SAVE and reduce my costs not increase my monthly payment!!! Even told her Telus is offering faster for cheaper with better uploads speeds, the entire speel but yeah, she wouldn't budge. Said she can't manually enter in a savings or promotion plan.

    My buy out is $240 and I can save $360/year from Telus which equates to $120 total cost savings....but Telus hasn't built out their fiber services here yet is the prob.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.
