September 2020 Upload Speed Increase Starting September 10th 2020, Fibre+ 150, 300, 750, and Gig will all see a major increase in their upload speeds. Fibre+ 150 will increase to 15 Mbps, Fibre+ 300 to 100 Mbps, Fibre+ 750 to 100 Mbps, and Fibre+ Gig to an amazing 100 Mbps. These updates will happen automatically for eligible customers at no extra cost. From what I can tell, you need to be on a DOCSIS 3.1 modem so if you have a Hitron or Cisco, you won't get it. Grandfathered plans will not be eligible. EXISTING CUSTOMERS will get it at the end of September while while new customers can start getting it now.
Hey, so I have been with Shaw for the longest time since there has been no fiber optic internet with Telus since now. They installed the Telus cords into my apartment building but I don't think it's worth it to switch or try to inquire, Shaw is gonna be ramping up their upload speed sometimes and I think Telus limits ports for Home Servers and Shaw does not. If I switch to Telus I would need to get Tv phone and internet which seems like a big hassle and no guarantee on their prices after a year or two. Shaws wired are already installed into the walls and Telus would have to wire their fiber cord along my roof and I am not sure where I could put their modem. Someone said I would have to put it in my closet (so no thanks no plug or RJ-45 connection there) Some people would like to kill for fiber and get it running right away but I don't know about that in my situation.

who do I talk to at shaw about a Shaw utilitybox that is open in the snow. it's a phone and cable box on my condo unit.
1.5Gbe plan launched. 100Mbps upstream. $165/mo on contract ($175/mo regular rate.)
I cruise the shaw site regularly and saw this https://support.shaw.ca/t5/internet-articles/equipment-info-fibre-gateway-2-0-xb7/ta-p/29898 Looks like the XB7 is rolling out in Calgary. Model #CGM4331SHW by Technicolor Interestingly there is a single 2.5Gb port, could be useful for bridgers.
