Re: [MB] Shaw slow speeds broadband 50

That's normal for now. Shaw is doing a Massive upgrade for the entire city and hope to have it completed by March. The bandwidth is Maxed out right now.

The upgrade they are performing is the conversion to digital which will open up the flood gates. This is what I was told by a tech who came to the house and did not do a thing. We talked and he left. My node is at 86% capacity and speaks by the time it hits midnight. But since it doesn't peak all day they will not split the note.

So I say you will need to deal with it until the upgrade. And shaw won't compensate either. They say the speeds are UP To which I think is a bunch of BS because they have a tier'd system. IF you're getting a max speed in the tier lower than yours then you should be paying for that tier price. Just like when they bump you up with the BB50.
