Like most of the people here, I am waiting for the network upgrade to be done in my area. I have heard originally the upgrade was to be completed by the third week of March 2013 as I had received an email from Shaw stating that the upgrade was beginning soon (the mailed letter was send around the middle of February 2013). I checked with Shaw in the community message center and was told that my area (based on address) had been delayed after only starting the network upgrade this week March 25, 2013 because Shaw ran out of the required hardware to complete the network upgrade. I chatted with a different Shaw support person over the online chat last night, March 28, 2013 and was told that the upgrade was being done as of this week, again March 25, 2013 to April 1, 2013 depending on who you believe. I am not sure when the upgrade will be done but I did inquire about the BB 250 once the upgrade is done. The interesting fact was this: According to the person I chatted with online last night said there were not that many requests for BB 250 and the actual upload speed for BB 250 was not 15 mb but rather 5 mb and was only available in places such as Chestimere, AB rather than anywhere in Calgary. I asked what the network upgrade would do for me and what was the fastest speed available in my area with or without the network upgrade and I was told the best I can do for now is BB100. What I want to know is this, is anyone requesting BB 250 from the dls reports site. Have you been able to get BB 250 speed after the network upgrade and or what do we have to do to get BB 250 if and when the network upgrade is completed. Regards, Edward Letendre
