9 month review update
Service activated July 1/2010 - no major delays, called, got new customer 6 month promo of half price and modem shipped and delivered next day. Plugged modem in, voila internet.
UPDATE on UBB
Shaw (much to my surprise) has listened to their customers and the bandwidth caps (which led to my previous negative review) have been raised to acceptable levels. Looking at the new plans, it's one of the highest caps in Canada from a mainstream ISP (250GB on Extreme makes netflix usable in HD) and for $10 more I can have a 400GB cap w/ a 50Mbps downstream (if the node will support it or not is another question)
It might be my area, but I haven't noticed congestion slowdowns. It might be most of the audience around here tends to be less digitally connected, and uses their internet more or less to check email.
