Ok lets end this debate once for all.
Nodes go on poles AND cabinet depends on area of design
When a node is saturated, node gets whats called segment, so node goes to nodeA and nodeB. Each of the segment will get another router card which is 100Gbits I believe hence eases the load on the single node since now you have 2 100Gbit pipeline of internet feeding the same area.
It has a lot more technical stuff that go into them. But yes we need permission from bchydro and telus if we are using their manholes or poles.
I know this because i build them

Any way to leverage it for more bandwidth with a multi-wan router?
max 5mbit/sec from those connections. Better off jackin' up the neighbouring business' wifi.

Just got this in my paper-free bill in my email:

Starting August 1, 2015, the price for your Shaw services will be increasing by $3.00, plus taxes.

I only pay for Shaws internet at $67/month after tax -> going to be $70~ after August 1st

Hmm would you guys recommend shaw? Or telus? I did a speed test on shaw cable and got like 15 mbs while I got 16 on telus. shaw speed seems to fluctuate a lot but I've seen telus have a lot of cutting out issues. or should I try those cheap tech savy or cik? That my friend recommended but I've read horrible reviews about both
