Re: [BC] Scared to upgrade to shaw

Cisco modem, in bridge mode so it is just a modem, and use your own router, you can put whatever you want on it.

If you are running servers, there is a good chance you were violating the residental terms of service running servers.

Business internet is close in price to residental, BB50 50/5, includes basic cable, and a static IP, 1 year promo either $79 or $49 depending on where you live...

You would not be able to bring/use your own modem, it has to be a modem supplied by Shaw.

The other bonus with a business account, is $10 for a second modem with the same speed profile - Shaw won't bridge it for you, it 'has' to be in router mode, but there are tricks that you can use to bridge it yourself...

That sounds interesting. Heres my dillemma. To me it would appear whatever I do in my life someone is mirroring my connection and phone line. Not sure why this would be going on.

I dont think I am interesting in any way but I do know lines have to be maintained. FORWARD DNS SERVERS is essential to the operation of the internet. I dont really understand why something would be in the TOS that says the customer can't do something which could increase the speed and latency and recursion time of whatever its connected to by as much as 90%.

Without forward servers the internet would just sit grinding away looking for a domain name whether its google yahoo, EDGECAST, bing LYCOS or whatever you mix with.

It seems like its more of a attitude issue. I can work with anyone anywhere in the world and make something better thats not working well or at all.

Why would anyone take offense to that is beyond me.

The speed thing essentially is rather stupid to me since it seems I have two choices. Pay allot for something that has a attitude that charges a fortune for business because poor customer service seems to pay the bills.

Im so tired of this guys.

Its time to grow up really terry sorry I mean whoever you are.

The choice seems to be extortion to me. What I am currently paying is F'in ridiculous for like I said previous a fraction of what I am paying for. Now they are charging 10 bucks a month more for a static IP " If not the loser rolls it every 8-12 hours " and now a extra 2.50 just for bills to be sent.

Not sure why anyone would roll a ip other than be annoying shaw has never done this or telus. I just can't seem to get a mature solution for internet just the same hassle. What is everyones problem?

There isn't enough real choices. I remember the days of CADVISION man did that work awesome 127KBS upstream 900KBS downstream ALL DAY LONG. never a hiccup never a problem perfect pings and then telus bought them and like everything telus buys it became telus quality shortly afterwards.

I was hoping I would get he same type of connection this time around but no.

Yup that connection was cool RDSL ran a line from the pole to the house. Nowadays I get nothing but lies on the phone and its irritating having no options. Sure the location sucks but the attitude I guess is what is the real problem. So I have to pay 400 bucks a month more for a adult that actually understands the internet?

Im just tired in general of getting d1cked around.

I guess I will just put this social assistance money aside by my near genius Iq and keep paying for internet phone shelter etc. And spend my big 50 bucks on something for myself a month.

I wonder somedays why vancouver island is so different from other cities like Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton which seem to have so many job oppurtunities.

You need a phone to get a job offer, internet helps the job search too but if its the same people collecting your info that are just doing that. Collecting intel not offering a job it becomes rather pointless applying at the same job over and over and over again.

How perfect for the job do you have to have , how much experience. How many degrees. Maybe she was right , I better go to mcDonalds.
