Better than Comcast

$60 per month gets you 25/2.5 with a 250GB cap. Compare that to Comcast where the same price gets 12/2 with the same cap.

Also, the high-cap broadband packages may sound expensive, but let's compare with Comcast. Their 50/10 is $117 and 100/10 is $200. If you count in modem rental fees, Comcast's 50/10 comes out to more like $125. For the same price a few months from now you'll be able to get 250/15 with a 1TB cap. Or $145 for no cap. Both cost less than Comcast's 100/10 service. Plus you don't even need to ever sign up for the $145 tier...just let it bump you up from the $125 one when you transfer more than 1TB.

Is it expensive? No question about it, yes, particularly if you look at the unlimited 1M tier. But when you compare Shaw's new pricing to service across the CA-US border, they actually come out ahead. $85 including TV for 50/5 with a 400GB cap, or $95 for 100/10 with a 500GB cap is, again, better than what Comcast wants to offer without TV bundled in.

comcast has 15/3 for 19.99/29.99
blast 20/4 for 29.99/39.99
you're wrong again. those are 6 month introductory price
well they have to make their money somewhere down the road
down the lane. who is gonna save you money forever?
you can't be too cheap becuz money is capitalism and profits
i assure you the more profits the better off a company...
You are forgetting DSL ATT 3mbit at 19.99 and 6mbit at 24.99
after a year its 35.00 and 40.00 a month respectively
the point is that.. you get what you pay for...
Money is limited but bandwidth is not.

???

I'm comparing off-promo rates to off-promo rates. Just because Comcast is giving me 20/2 for $19.99 (I have my own modem) right now doesn't mean that that's the rate I should use to compare Comcast with Shaw. The idea of ceteris paribus applies here. If you don't know what that means then look it up.
