Gigabit internet speeds have arrived for residential Shaw customers in Western Canada, as of today. Shaw says new Fibre+ Gig plans are now available to over 99 per cent of its residential customers, after the company launched gigabit speeds for businesses back in March.
“Customers today trust in and rely on their home technology like never before, which is why we have continued investing in growing our Fibre+ network and services — more than $20 billion over the past seven years — to bring Western Canadians the blazing fast speeds and bandwidth they need to power their connected lives,” said Paul McAleese, President, Shaw Communications, in a statement.
Shaw has also launched a new entry-level internet plant today at $50 per month for download speeds of up to 10 Mbps. Check out the new internet plans below:
- Fibre+ Gig: Up to 1 Gbps download speeds with unlimited data for $115 monthly on a 2-year ValuePlan; upload speeds up to 25 Mbps
- Fibre+ 750 (new): Up to 750 megabits-per-second (Mbps) with unlimited data starting at $110 per month on a 2-year ValuePlan; upload speeds up to 20 Mbps
- Basic 10 (new): Starts at $50 per month on a 2-year ValuePlan, with download speeds of up to 10 Mbps; upload speeds up to 1 Mbps
The upload speeds need to get better with Shaw, but if you’ve been waiting for Gigabit internet with the service provider, you can now leverage these plans against Telus PureFibre when you’re negotiating for a deal in Western Canada.
