Shaw Cable Charges.

Postby gardengirl » Nov 1st, 2017, 7:46 pm

I just got my bill and my rate went up $30!!!
What the f is that?
I have not made any changes to my account.
Anyone else have this happen? I called Shaw and the wait time was 40 minutes. I was #231 in the line...

Sorry that happened to you Gardengirl, but at #231, I'm guessing a whole lot of people woke up to this happening.

Netflix is still reasonable at $10 bux/month. Maybe remind them of that fact when you do get an rep on line? Do they have a facebook site to rant on too?

Telus prices went up recently as well.
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

Were you maybe on some discount plan good for x amount of months, after which it reverts back to the full price?

That does seem to be quite a jump.

Internet 15 (Shaw) discount price to regular price is exactly $30

That makes sense. I was on some discount plan a while back and forgot all about it, until I saw the full price bill and wondered what the heck, but then I looked at how many months had passed and figured it out.

Did you call in? $31 doesn't make sense even for Shaw.

I have never payed full price for home services in my life. I always negotiate...and shrewdly at that. I recently renegotiated with telus and currently pay about a third of what i should be paying and i know they are still making money on me or they wouldn't do it.

Don't let them bend you over :up:

^^^ I have been using can-com for a year and 9 months now....have never regretted it. I am using their internet and phone package. I started with the family plan for internet which was fine for speed..but decided to go with the pro plan of 74 down and 7.5 up for only $7 more. I am using the phone canada plan so it is free calling anywhere in within BC and i believe all of canada for $14.95.

If you sign up, use my refer a friend code of 21139 and get $10 off your first invoice and I get a buck off per month on my subscription ;)

Thanks... I may switch... even called shaw today and not much they could say other than smaller companies have less overhead .. yet can-com uses shaw lines... seems maybe not to fair to shaw but money talks now-a days ..have not had a home phone line for years only use cell... seems allot of cord cutting is happening or going to be... now if one can find a less expensive tv cable provider ??? Thanks Kelownman for the reply and comments

Their tv package is very reasonable starting with free with cbc, ctv, global, chek and cw up to the next level of "select" or "home" packages. The kicker is having to buy their $199 cypher IPTV box PER TV which makes it less attractive.
