Faster internet is coming for Bowen Shaw users

Shaw says that users should have internet comparable to the mainland's by April.

“Our teams are working hard to complete the required upgrades to our network to bring enhanced services to our customers,” said a Shaw spokesperson in an email.

Shaw says that all the network upgrades should be done by April. 

“We anticipate customers should have access to the faster internet speeds and enhanced video and phone services from Shaw that are comparable to what customers throughout the Lower Mainland currently enjoy,” said the spokesperson.
