It's about time

Canadians get unlimited bandwidth! Maybe this will push other providers to get their acts together and follow suit. plus the cap isn't bad at all, giving users alot of bandwidth.

To be fair, there are some other regional incumbents that still have unlimited. It's all of the smaller ones though, like Eastlink and Sasktel.

What is notable here is that the caps are going UP, and not down like the trend has been in Canada.

reply to pizz

Problem is their main competition is telus and they have never enforced UBB or truly tried to implement such changes. Also shaw has to compete with Novus(fiber) in vancover and sasktel and wholesalers so them lowering limits before implementing UBB was doomed to fail.

Hopefully since telus can not compete with shaws speeds they will stay competitive with unlimited internet usage at their current speeds which are more then enough for most homes.

Telus is history, the penetration rate for internet in Canada is high. Now that Shaw is taking all of Telus's subscribers they'll all enjoy Shaw television instead of having to deal with a joke on wheels company like Telus. The question that still exists is what took Shaw so long to finally wake up and is Rogers going to bury Bell or just keep on doing the same stupid thing?
