I have Telus 150. Are there any plans to double the speed for Telus customers? Same price?
They are not, but if you call in, and ask to speak to loyalty they might be able to do so wiggling to get unite speed for same or less money. Unlike Shaw’s it’s not automatic, it’s the usual YMMV negotiation with telus reps

Followup to my post of a month ago.

Things are looking good: 11 speedchecks since Dec 23 and only 1 below 300, which was still 292.

I'm happy!

Not too happy with actual experience ... before the 'upgrade', my Internet 150 was consistently giving me 171 - 175 Mbps. I cycled the power on December 3rd and it went to 306!! Awesome.

But then on the 4th, it was 250, then 230. On the 5th it was 108. On the 6th it was 80. On the 9th it was 97, then 116, then 110. Today it tested at 77!

Other folks have any advice?

I am checking it once a week, still keeping 300-320 so stable.

Been with Shaw for over 2 and a half years. I've always had their Hitron modem since I've been with them. Started with Internet 75 and then bumped up to 150 and have been on the 150 plan for almost 2 years now.

Why not just call Shaw and ask why? Maybe they can replace your old modem or something to do for you, at least find out the reason.

Maybe I should try that? I just walk in and ask if there's any good promos going on to keep me as a current customer due to my promo expiring?

Yes exactly! They are easy to deal and always have some good deal on the computer. If one doesn’t give you a good deal , you can just say “think about it first” and then come back again to ask the other person the other day.
