Not to mention the Telus 3-year contract but your constant harking on about Telus in the Shaw section of the forum would cause us to believe you are a Telus Shill. After all your review on Telus is rather old. If you had asked me about Shaw only 3 weeks ago I would have reviewed them much more positively than I do so now.

Nevertheless it would appear that Shaw has been fixed so all may be good in Shaw land

How does pointing out Telus' flaws make me a Telus shill? Do you even have a clue what a shill is? And my review on Telus, or the last update to it, was in Dec of 2011 which is hardly old. We were with Telus for less than a year and have been back with Shaw since Dec 2011.

This thread is discussing the problems with Shaw and not the problems with Telus.

shill: plant or stooge is a person who publicly helps a person or organization without disclosing that he or she has a close relationship with that person or organization.

Your inference of my having or not having a clue is bordering on a personal insult.

Perhaps it is you who did not understand the meaning of the word.

I did not say you were a shill - I said your constant straying from the topic would make us believe that you are.

3 months can be a long time in this industry.

Re: [BC] Broadband100 download speed only 1-4Mbps - Vancouver

So is everybody on broadband 100 getting 100Mbps download now?

Also is everyone on broadband 50 getting 50Mbps download now?

I'm still without internet since last night :-(

I am now getting about 45-48 Mbps on BB50. I think that is pretty well close enough and more than I would really expect. To expect 50 or 100 Mbps is not realistic.

By definition, someone pointing out Telus' issues would neither denote them as a Telus shill or have anyone with a modicum of intelligence deduce that from what was posted. By your logic that would also make pynnerz a Telus shill since he didn't keep the scope of his post to Shaw and wandered off into Telus land.

You're also off in your definition, or comprehension. So yes asking if you have a clue what the term actually means was more than fitting.

shill
noun

1.
a person who poses as a customer in order to decoy others into participating, as at a gambling house, auction, confidence game, etc.

2.
a person who publicizes or praises something or someone for reasons of self-interest, personal profit, or friendship or loyalty.

3.
to work as a shill

verb

4.
to advertise or promote (a product) as or in the manner of a huckster; hustle

Nothing that I posted would indicate that I'm a Telus shill by definition, by doing so was a blatant insult as I have no affiliation, in any way shape or form, to Telus.

3 months in this industry is not a long period of time, especially when comparing Telus and Shaw.

You are quite correct. I meant to write a Shaw Shill not a Telus shill. Apologies.

Slightly better, but on a bb50 package, it's still not good enough.

BB100 here at 41st and West Boulevard



Definitely a big improvement for me, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that's fixed.

ShawSean: have you heard any updates you're able to share yet?
For instance, it would be useful to know if there are going to be further incremental improvements over the next few days, or if it's likely to be like this until the upgrades are completely done, which as some of us have been told could be several months.

(and yes, I agree, let's try and keep this on topic guys)

interresting. My buddy who lives at Granville & 25th says his BB50 is doing 35-42 Mbps now as of today. He was also previously getting 1-4 Mbps.
Me on the other hand, I have no internet at Main st@57th
:-(

This is not making any sense!

Janstan is getting a perfect connection as of this morning @ 69th & Heather st.

My buddy who lives on Granville & 25th was getting 1-4 Mbps for the past couple of weeks but today he's getting 42Mbps.

Pynnerz is only getting 9Mbps @ 33rd & Arbutus

Heyman only has 4Mbps at 58th & Main st.

Me I have no internet as of yesterday but before that was same as Heyman's 4Mbps (even less). I'm at 57th & Main st.

ShawSean where are u bro? We are waiting for that long awaited update u promised.

Hey guys,

The issue that was causing the poor speeds while showing normal on the shaw speedtest has been found and our engineering teams are working on a fix as we speak.

If any of you are experiencing issues still, it may be unrelated and we'll want to investigate those reports further. Please pm me with your account details, reference this thread and we'll be in touch.

@Dave - We tried calling you several times last night to troubleshoot why your connection is down. Please let me know when the best time to reach you at is and what number.

Thanks for your patience guys, and we appreciate everyone's input in this thread.

Cheers.

@shawsean: Naw, there's nothing you can do as I am switching providers.. You guys had your chance.
And if there was a way to fix it, why bother me instead of just fixing it?
