Southern Alberta Outage
Anyone know the specifics to what happened today in Southern Alberta? I noticed my TV was down and internet was SLOW.
On BB250 my max since the outage down was 10mbps my upstream was averaging 12mbps, almost un-effected.
Any one actually know what happened?
Fiber cut somewhere in southern Alberta, impacted Moose Jaw too

It is interesting to know a single(cable)fiber cut can cause this much widespread issue..
This had to have been a major cable break as I am sure Shaw has multiple fibers serving these communities... (NOT)
If there are 2 cables and each one is handling 60% of the capacity, what do you think happens when 1 goes down.....
There's most likely a loop around the province, but then the links get saturated. It's not a normal condition, it will go back to normal.
BigPipe customers get priority when re-routing around the damaged, then ShawCable gets what is left, and then prioritize what services they want, telephone, then TV channels, then internet.
Yes, I am not employed and looking for IT work. Have passport, will travel.
