my 25/25 fios by surewest is unlimited! better then shaw!

for only 69.99 a month!
28 days
7.2TB
if doing up and down up to 14TB of data transfer a month
1TB for 250MBIT is just BS
I can easily hit 1TB in just 4 days on my 25mbit connection
shaw still sucks
i now understand taht speed alone is not good enough
im paying less then 84.00 a month and still get more speed
25 times faster

well there is going to be unlimited and 250mbit as well. I'm sure you understand that your usage is amongst the minority of users, and as far as pricing is concerned, you're never going to see the pricing at the same scale. The US has 10x the population. Its a simple matter of economy of scale.

Cool story, bro.
But seeing as Surewest and Shaw service totally different areas - countries for that matter - it's kind of a moot comparison. It would be like my cousin coming in and saying, "Surewest sucks, in Japan I get 100Mbps. I pay less than $60USD and still get more speed. 4 times faster "

It's a step in the right direction for their users with, hopefully, more to follow.

FiOS? You don't have FiOS as that is a Verizon product and trademark. You have SureWest Internet.

Yeah I hate when people think FiOS is a common name for fiber optic service. It's a trademark of Verizon's fiber based services.

Only a minority of users needs anything above 5Mb/s. There is no point in 100Mb or 250Mb/s unless they are unlimited or have huge caps. The unlimited option doesn't look bad, however, though the upload is a joke.

Not quite true. More and more people need 12 mb or 20 mb but they may not need yet 50mb. It depends all on what households we talk about. 5 mb is decent but not great. A signle hd 720p stream may max out bandwith.

That doesn't even make sense. In France free.fr offers phone, TV, and FTTH for a triple play $40/month. Scale has nothing to do with this.

A bandwidth hog? Do you even know how bandwidth appropriation works?

He's on fiber, most likely GPON. That apportions 2.4 gbit/s of bandwidth for every 32 people. You can't "hog" bandwidth on FTTH.

And France has a very dense population, therefore proving his point.

I am quite aware that Canada and the U.S. share a border. The point (which was apparently lost on you) was that you're comparing two different companies, operating in two different countries, under two different socioeconomic and geopolitical conditions.

FYI, just because they are next to each other, doesn't mean they're the same. When comparing the U.S. and Canada, and the businesses that operate within them, proximity has nothing to do with regulations and the inter-workings of business practices and governmental politics, e.g., North Korea/South Korea, Cuba/United States, India/Pakistan, China/Japan, etc.

And there are 8 US states with with a higher population density than France (9 if you count Washington D.C.) There are 4 states with at least double the population density of France. None of them see anything even remotely close to what you can get in France.

im not a dude
a bandwidth hog?
you want me to pay more?
u outta ur mind. all my speed tier is unlimited that why cost so much already.. the 50mbit is 192.00
the 25mbit 69.99
15mbit is 54.99
8mbit is 39.99
1mbit is 29.99
surewest doesnt need to compete with shaw
sw compete with itself.

Let me say it again or rephrase it
why may more when you can pay less?
why pay more then necessary for speed you only need?

bandwidth is unlimited

Your so call canadian isp have been lying to you since your birth
the network slow down if a lot of user are on it but it is unlimited
due to be fool to think they have limited bandwidth
it is marketing hype and only work on ignorant people or newbies
its a pipeline. No limits!!!
bandwidth is forever!
it not like water or gas or electrical that are abundance but limited.

it digital data 0 and 1
you dont understand technology and computer stuff
you are not a nerd.
the reason for caps is to make more money and make you use less bandwidth.
1mb
100mb
1gb
10gb
100gb
1TB
u dont understand bit and bytes then dont bother, you failed computer training courses.
