Shaw in January(?Effective January 6?) is changing the speed with new tiers for new subscribers. Current subscribers will be grandfathered. Leaked this morning(Dec 16 2014) and Shaw damage control is ongoing. Reddit threads Leaker thread https://pay.reddit.com/r/shaw/comments/2pf4t2/internet_downgrades/ Shaw is downgrading the internet packages. 90 dollars/month used to get you 100mbps. Come January it will only be 60mbps. 50mbps for $80 will now be 30mbps. 25mbps for $60 will now be 15mbps. 10mbps for $55 will become 5mbps for $50. Appears that the fastest upload will be 3mbps Graph of new tiers and Shaw profits with it. https://pay.reddit.com/r/canada/comments/2pgb3w/shaw_starting_january_6th_all_new_internet_is_40/ I don't see yet what the GB per month is. . Don't change your service speeds after Dec 31 2014 or you will lose your now grandfathered plan and get knocked down to the new tiers. .
