Effective immediately, Shaw Communications announced
yesterday a speed increase upgrade to Shaw Extreme, their base Internet service.
This move is speculated to have been made to help customers reach their Internet experience’s full potential. With easier use of Internet based products such as Netflix, Youtube and online games, Shaw has responded to the growing demand of high-speed Internet packages.
Customers will see a change effective today with an upgrade in download speed from 15 to 25 Mbps and an upload speed boost from 1 to 2.5 Mbps, an impressive increase offering. This offer is the first step in Shaw’s unveiling of its new Internet packaging to be introduced in early summer.
