    Bell, now Shaw is following sheep. Next will probably be Telus at this rate.. This is like that sopa/pipa crap a few years ago, Canada also had it's own version of basically the same thing, & as usual we followed the USA after theirs failed. Here it is again, as net neutrality. Bell, you are garbage, never liked them, Shaw is also not much better if they are going to follow, this fast already. As we should all know, this far beyond about simple "banning piracy" excuse they always throw around. Article: http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/shaw-joins-rogers-in-net-neutrality-ban/ "Yesterday, it was reported that Bell is leading a coalition of Canada’s biggest media companies, that intends to put an end to net neutrality in the name of blocking piracy and now, Shaw is also making the case for website blocking by devoting several pages to supporting it. According to Michael Geist, Shaw seeks to equate access to grey market satellite services with unauthorized streaming services. While Rogers has indicated that it is still considering whether to join Bell’s coalition or not, Shaw is focused on granting approvals for blocking with court oversight. Shaw acknowledges that Canadian copyright law already addresses Internet piracy and that court orders can be obtained to shut down services that violate the law. It however argues that even with a court order, the CRTC must still approve website blocking. Shaw submits that the CRTC should consider using its authority under section 36 to approve court orders for ISPs to block access to online services infringing Canadian copyright law. While the Telecommunications Act’s objectives articulated in section 7 do not refer directly to the promotion or protection of a Canadian rights market, there is a clear case that blocking access to illegal streaming services responds to the “economic and social requirements of user of telecommunication services”, in furtherance of paragraph 7(e). As carriers are lining up in support of some form of website blocking, the issue is already sparking a political backlash, with Conservative MP Matt Jeneroux raising the issue in the House of Commons yesterday.

  • 12/18/17--11:15: Mobi Shaw go wifi.
  • Throughout Vancouver there are many mobi Shaw WiFi hotspots that were supposed to be for Shaw customers and non customers using a guest account, but whenever I am near a Mobi Shaw go location it says only Shaw customers, so is this the case, only Shaw customers can use the hotspots?

    Dec 12 | Illegal streaming services Document created by shaw-fraser on Dec 12, 2017•Last modified by shaw-fraser on Dec 12, 2017 Version 2'  View in full screen mode At Shaw, we are concerned about the growing amount of illegal material on the Internet and we are supportive of finding a fair and efficient way to protect Canadians from illegal sites. Streaming, not downloading, is now the primary method of accessing illegal content online and paid subscription services offering access to pirated streams is becoming a sophisticated and lucrative industry. These illegal sites often expose customers to malware and other malicious threats that could lead to serious crimes like identity theft. These sites also affect Canada's broadcasting and production industries—leading to potential job loss and harm to the Canadian economy.

    Alright with the new shaw promotion I changed to internet 150 they had to take away my dpc3825 (in bridge mode) and swapped to hitron one. I also requested it to be bridged so the hitron itself only works as modem right now. the technician just swapped the modem so I have the same setup as previous. as shown on the picture the ping spikes to 1000ms and it happens regularly. I talked to 4 of technical support on shaw and some of them were just ignorant saying it looks good enough and should not effect my internet experience since the internet speed is fine ... haha well I got technician coming on this friday and have to wait for a week with this garbage modem :/ I tried to connect directly from the modem to computer.. ( tried 11 computers!) and tried to remove a coax splitters between incoming coax and the modem just in case but made no difference. So I realized that the new modem itself is the problem. Guys.. Hitron SUCKS! if you are using cisco dpc3825 just keep with it and go for telus if you value ping. (shaw's ping and jitter are unreliable) I got trapped to 2 year contract with shaw and wait for a week to get technician to figure out wheter the hitron is defective or not. ps. from playing overwatch i can clearly see that something is wrong before I get in to the shaw server. this was not like this when using dpc3825 with internet100

    A friend of mine who is a shaw customer told me that they had two separate SSIDs on there modem and that they could only access one of them. I never heard of a modem having two SSIDs at the same time so I went to her place to see if I could help apparently. a person changed one of the SSIDs which is the one she is currently connected to but she wanted to connect to the other one. she points out the second one that had a shaw name with a few digets with a 5G at the end of the name I tried quite a few times using the PW she gave me but could not connect to the 5 g shaw . I did notice that the signal strength of the apparent SSID she said she used to be able to log into was at least 2 bars lower then the one she currently was connected to. I also noticed that there is allot of i other SSIDs showing . I didn't want to reset the modem and start over until I can confirm that 2 SSIDs can run at the same time from the modem this is why I was wondering if it is possible to have two SSIDs running at the same time off of here modem .

    New Users, for now. For current users, wait till the usual August price increase. These are normal rates and not special pricing rates. https://www.shaw.ca/internet/plans/ Internet 75 was $80. Now $89. Including 2 year value plan. Internet 15 was $70. Now $79. Internet 5 was $60. Now... Where'd it go? Internet 150, still the same at $105

    I just noticed that, since today, my bufferbloat on the UL side went from an usual C to A, barely any... this is with the dreaded Hitron. I was used to seeing the UL bufferbloat at the C level (+200ms or more), but since this morning, I barely see a few ms on the UL... Not complaining, just curious as to what happened... upgrade to something?

    My final year is 2018 before my contract is up and I was just casually checking the pricing of Shaw internet plans and have seen that it has gone up to $55 (6 month)/$99 (1 1/2 yr). Just less than a year and it already costs $20 more. Internet 15 for $55 (3 month)/$79 per month is highway robbery. I also don't get the whole need for online credit to offshoot whatever it is they want to make more complicated than it should be.

    Just noticed that CTV News Channel and Much Music are available on Limited TV? Or it's a free preview? Can't find any information on this.

    According to news reports Shaw plans to reduce current staff by 25% in a buyout program. They stated that the company will continue current operations as usual, but this is part of a long term plan to reduce focus on the cable business and get more into mobile. http://www.news1130.com/2018/02/15/shaw-cut-one-quarter-workforce-buyouts/ Apparently 5x as many employees are taking the buyout offer as Shaw expected. Generous buyout or staff rushing for the exits?

  • 02/22/18--12:55: Brownfield fibre
  • This is more of a question to the Shaw tech that hang out here, but is there any plans to convert to FTTH in established communities like Telus is? I know coax has much more life in it than phone lines but eventually it will be required and I am just curious if this is a 5-10 year thing or more like a 15-20 year thing.

  • 02/28/18--19:24: Shaw 1gbps?
  • I remember a while back there was talk about shaw 1gbps but it never happened. Now there is this page on their website: https://www.shaw.ca/fibreplus/ where they mention "In fact, we're already upgrading our network for the next wave of Internet technology (DOCSIS 3.1) – one capable of delivering Internet speeds of over 1 Gbps." Anyone know anything more about this?
