Re: [BC] Shaw Upload Speed

No its not minus overhead. The profile sync is higher so you will receive 25/2.5

Not even close. The profiles sync higher, and QoS allows some wiggle room. With my PVR recording 3HD streams, my internet speeds dropped to 17Mb/s X 1.7Mb/s. They do sync the line higher, but the more STB's will bring the speeds down. QoS can only do so much

So rusty you currently have Optik?

Negative, got rid of it after my 3rd Actiontec device failed. Last time was on a long weekend, had to wait 4 days till I had TV and Internet again. Also got no compensation for all the downtime on either occasion. Their new service definitely interests me, for the internet only. I can't get over the fact they don't supply a modem only device if requested.

Like you say rusty the difference between shaw and telus can be different in each area. On vancouver island I experienced huge swings in ping and speed depending on the time of day with shaw. Shaw made gaming and voip quality suffer during prime time. I was also getting tired of the constant price increases last year. I went to telus for tv and internet and was happy. I ended up moving to teksavvy because I like how they run their business. I now get my tv via ota and netflix

When I had optik my modem would sync to 34m down 3.2up

I had no issues getting 25meg down when recording 2HD streams. When using 3hd stream I would get 20m down.

Currently I'm using teksavvy and receive these speeds 24/7

ping was a little high from qos rules, my wife was on the phone
