Re: not surprising
Shaw is already offering cable at 250 megs down, 15 megs up. They freed up enough spectrum to do this by completing their analog migration and ending analog transmission.
Of course, they may be the only major cableco in North America to have done that. It cost them $100 million to do it (it took 16 months, starting in August 2011).
To put this in perspective, Shaw has 3.4 million customers in total, and 1.8 million cable internet subscribers. I don't believe they include their 900k satellite television subscribers in this total (they list Shaw Direct separately).
