    My current bill is $257 per month with taxes. It is getting too expensive with their price increases. My bill is as follows: Personal TV + Broadband 100 $130.90 Most Popular Themes $50.00 Home phone basic: $10.00 Home phone personal: $17.00 Phone features: $20.00 There are two phone lines in the house. Cutting any of the phone lines are not an option. Long distance is used heavily. VOIP is not an option. The most glaring thing I see is the most popular themes for $50.00 per month. But if I cut that don't I lose the best of HD? Or is that included? I tried looking at the new plans, but they seem to be cutting just $20.00, and I lose lots of channels, and my connection drops from 100Mbit to 60Mbit. Any ideas on getting this bill lower? Edit: The channels that I watch are AMC, TSN, and sportsnet. Thanks for the help.

    I upgraded to the Cisco modem from the SMC one. I am on 100 Mbps and it seems they are pushing me to the 120 plan even though I am grandfathered on the 100 plan now. I was having a lot of issues with peak times and random slow downs. I phoned in and asked if there was congestion in my area. Tech said no and immediately offered a modem upgrade. Now when I run shaw's speed test I get a *very* smooth speed profile, varies less then 5 Mbps on a 120-125 Mbpstest result. Was the SMC screwing stuff up that badly? This new modem is great so far! Can anyone explain what was happening there, for curiosity's sake?

    I keep getting a call from 604 310 2255 wanting to give me offers for services. I told him I don't have Telus, why are you spamming me? He said your number is unlisted so we can call. I said I don't want it...he's like, "we can help you with that..." Click!! I hung up, logged into Shaw portal and blocked 604 310 2255. Whats with these CLOWNS? Telus trying to steal Shaw customers directly? I hate that kind of sh*t :mad:

    Hello guys, I am very interested in acquiring a grandfathered 250 Mbps plan from a Shaw customer. Would anyone be willing to let me know if they are interested in selling me their internet plan? I am not sure if this violates forum rules or not. I apologize in advance if it does. It is not my intention to violate forum rules in case an inquiry like this does contradict the rules. Sincerely, pkclown

  • 08/22/15--22:16: When will Shaw support IPV6?
  • I know that some ISPs such as TekSavvy have been offering IPV6 connectivity to users. Do you know when Shaw will start supporting IPV6?

    I've recently (this week) developed an exceedingly weird issue regarding my download speed on BB50. Let me first describe my setup. I use both my Shaw IP's. One of those IP's is connected via ethernet cable to a freestanding laptop which I will call DMZ. In other words, it is IN NO WAY related to my second IP, which houses a LAN served by a DD-WRT hacked d-link router. In other words, two discreet systems, which could be at opposite ends of the Shaw geographical area, tho' both share the 50.71.xxx.xxx address range. About a week ago, I noticed on both DMZ and LAN, a sudden and severe drop in download speed along with a massive increase in latency and ping. I quickly checked on the Shaw Speed Test and got down speeds in the 4 - 1 mbps range. Insanely, my upload speeds, on all the test sites, was just below 3, iow, "normal" Assuming that this might be a mere problem with the speed test, I checked my ACTUAL download speeds using Astraweb, which normally gives me a tad more than 50 mbps. Now, it was sending to me at 3 or 4 mbps at best, on both LAN and DMZ. Finally, I decided to double check my catastrophic drop in speed by using the new dslreport speedtest. And here's where it gets spooky. The DSLreport test instantly gave my my full, wide-open 55 or so mbps. Again, tho I hate to repeat myself, on both DMZ and LAN Now, I began thinking magically...Maybe the router was "somehow" interfering with all the modem's ports or the DMZ machine, so I shut down the router and physically removed it from the modem. No change, DMZ speed remained awful (1.6)...and, just to drive me nuts, the dlsreport test showed a perfect 55 or so. During the course of the week there have been two brief periods (a few minutes), when my bb50 speed returned to normal. I really need some help on this. What could possibly account for this issue? I think I've proved it has nothing to do with the router and the LAN. If it's the modem itself, how come I can get a full 50 mbps on dslreports (and several other,one of which is IN MY CITY) test sites? The first thing that came to my mind was that I was being throttled...but that makes no sense, and I believe Shaw when it claims they never throttle downloads. Further, I've never, not even once, exceeded my monthly allowance. One final point. I had a support visit from a (nice guy) technician who insisted that my problem HAD TO BE at Shaw's end, something to do with routing, whether dns tables or whatever. (In other words, it's "as if" once requests get past the gateway, they split and most of them enter screwed up routing tables) But, as you probably can guess, Shaw absolutely refuses to connect me to their network people and, hahaha, every time I use the word "routing" on the phone or the concierge chatline, the first line kids tell me that they don't support routers. It's getting into Kafka territory. Please help. Any further information requested will be immediately forthcoming. (And, finally, should I have posted this elsewhere?)

  • 06/13/15--14:00: DOCSIS 3 modem only?
  • Basically I'm on a retention deal and it seems they don't have a billing code to put my modem into bridge mode at 60/3. I've been using the Cisco DPC3825 in bridge prior to this (with 50/3). The tech came by today and basically wheny the pushed the config I went to the router mode with 60/3. When I asked to be bridge I went to 30/2.5. Someone's supposed to get into touch with me again since I insisted I want bridge mode. But that will be in the next couple days I've seen the Hitron CGNM-2250 mentioned as having pass-through. Can anyone confirm that? I also think that might cost me more money though Anyways, long story short anyone know what the best option is for bridging/passthrough? Thanks in advance

    I was browsing mrnice.nl today then all of a sudden the website went 404 (not found) So I went to McAfee to check the domain and the report says that the domain is safe and accessible; so I went to another site to check the status and it also says it is up so my conclution is that SHAW is blocking it. Does SHAW block websites in the "Drugs" category? It appears so because I also can not access other seed suppliers like CBCcrew.org I am with a legal MMPR licensed producer so I have legitimate reasons to go to these sites; I guess I'm cancelling SHAW (big brother).

    I currently have BB100+ (800GB cap) with my own modem (from the nitro days). I am a fairly heavy user and there are no 100Mbit+ plans available from other providers. I am willing to pay more for unlimited but that is no longer an option. TekSavvy no longer offers that speed. Any suggestions? (and using less bandwidth is not an option) My usage varies from 1200GB to 2000GB

  • 09/04/15--21:05: [BC] Who and why??
  • I have a DPC3825 and today I noticed 192.168.0.10 listening on my router. I have bridge mode and never see 192.168.0.xyz. I could even access my router user page which is always impossible in bride mode. Why would this show up?? Also when I tried to log in, nothing happened. It took my password but just stayed on the same page, the status button does nothing also.

    50/50 chance that I might get stuck with Shaw Internet in a future location. F#cking building managers and their personal refusal of Telus fibre access/install. Telus copper is apparently limited at 6Mbps for new installs at every address checked over a wide area(Telus site's address qualification tool). If stuck with Shaw(no Teksavvy available), what are the general max sustainable speeds for a VPN(P.I.A.) on the Shaw 60/3 plan? I have a slight concern that the 3 upload may be a bit wimpy to get 60 down. Of course needing low latency to achieve best results. . Shaw Gateways, is there any currently available that are easily bridgeable by Shaw support or the end users? Don't really feel like buying my own cable modem. 24x8(32x8) channels being the latest and greatest. -- Fibre optic wants in your building, you Luddite!

  • 09/10/15--07:08: Horrible Shaw Speeds
  • I have the 25 meg plan, and recently started getting awful speeds as low as 4 or 5 meg down.. this morning it was 2 meg down with a faster upload at 2.5. I reset the modem to factory defaults , as I always do when it gets that bad. the speed improved to 20 meg. but it goes down fast from one minute to the next. I have nothing on the shaw modem, no banwidth drains on my laptop. I was told by Shaw that they have terrible speed problems in my neighborhood and maby I would have to downgrade my Internet plan as they could not guarantee to provide my current plan. They can not fix their network because my municipality has such tight regulations on their expansion here in sault ste marie Ontario. I cant believe that. 73.00 a month and they can not provide the internet to me. I will try exchanging the modem soon, worth a try. I do have the newer modem available but it isn't working or shaw internet now goes up and down in speed .

    First of all sorry for the Anon username thing... My account is stuck in a loop of being locked for inactivity but whenever I reset it, will send an email to my old account which I don't have access to anymore... I can unlock my account with the old password but it wont allow me to unlock it without accessing the old email address.... Second, has anyone actually looked at the html code for some of the shaw routers? It seems that mine has bridge mode/router switch purposely hidden from view... Im not sure how shaw will take to me posting some of their code on here but the comments in front of the code brings the option back...
