Shaw is Raising Internet, TV & Phone Rates Effective August 1st

Shaw will be raising their rates at the beginning of August 2016.

Bad news for Shaw users across Alberta. Internet, TV and phone rates are rising effective August 1, 2016 and there’s nothing we can do about it.


The reason given by Shaw themselves:

Canadians are using the Internet more and viewing more TV shows and movies on more devices than ever before. As a leading communications provider, we are committed to giving our customers more access to the leading content and technology they want—now and into the future.Shaw

They go on to say that these rates should stay relatively steady until the summer of 2017:

We understand that price predictability is important to our customers and are committed to maintaining these regular rates on TV, Internet and Phone plan packages at least until summer 2017.Shaw

It is unclear how much any of their services will be rising at this time, as they have not made this clear in their [bulletin release].
