Shaw 60 or Telus 150?

I'm currently a Shaw customer. I was offered the following. What's the better option? $45 for 60mbps for a year or with Shaw or $49 for 150 Mbps with Telus for a year?

I don't need 150 so internet 60 is more than sufficient

the 49 is on contract though, you don't want to get stuck in a 2 year contract. i signed up for shaw's $60 no contract

more importantly, why is the east getting 1gbit on cable while we in the west are stuck with 150mbit as the highest tier?

Probably higher population densities, so it's more profitable to upgrade

why buy a Porsche 911 when you can save $4 and buy a Mustang GT? Face With Tears Of Joy

Either way just make sure you aren't locked into a contract. I'm on telus 150 without contract. also, why is this in the hot deals section?

Is the TELUS offer just with Internet only or do you have to bundle it with Optik TV?

You'd have to be off billing for 90 days to get a new promo

Neither. Stop supporting the cartel. There are far better ISP options.

yes but then after 12 months what next? calling and seeing what you can offer me because the price will probably go up? no thanks I'll stick with a 3rd part ISP for half the cost and no games.
