Shaw_Alex is an employee here, send him a PM with your address and he should be able to look it up

At least with Shaw, there is no contract and free install, try it for a month, or a week... See what it is like first-hand.

Otherwise, I would take Teksavvy over Telus

There is no contract with telus unless you take their special tv or whatever they are offering. Go with whomever has the best price.

FTFY. And puts Telus out of the picture.

Support for either is a hit and miss, I go with an ISP that can give me 99% up time and 0 issues during peak times. as of right now i have Telus 15mbps but i crave more speed. and since im moving it will be closer to the Telus CO but who knows how it is wired and if ill even get 25mbps+. according to shaw alex there is no node saturation in Merritt. so i might try shaw out.

Just an FYI from a couple past experiences with Shaw. I would take that comment with a grain of salt... I've had not only myself but a couple friends told the same thing and than sign up and find a node that is completely saturated.

As with anything to do with computers, networks always have a plan B.
