Shaw Internet services “shape” the bandwidth you use. For those of you who use torrent sites, don’t bother buying the Shaw “Extreme” package thinking you will get better download speed. Simply won’t happen.

Shaw have limited these downloads to 6 kbs which on a bandwith that has the capability of 160 kbs is nothing!

The limiting as they are managing it screws up your modem, routers and switches. In effect it will overload the resource of your machine so you cannot get your internet pages, email etc until you shut down your torrent program.

Coming up will be industry comparison of services.
