No need to go through their call main line. Call their Fibre team directly. I got through instantly.



I'm using a multi-wan router, by the way...

Hmmm first lady said you can watch 4k on all tv's with just the regular box, which doesn't make sense at all.
Now the lady says they can only provide one 4k box, even if i wanted to purchase a second box, anyone have any luck getting 2 4k boxes?

Supposedly, you can only have 1 PVR box per network. Currently, only the new 4k PVR supports 4K. There are no other receivers from Telus that support 4k.
I guess you're only allowed 1 for now.

Hang on, you have multiple 4k capable TVs/Monitors? Baller...

So I called not expecting to really get much because when I signed 2 year contact 6 months ago I opted for the $300 gift card instead.

At first I was offered $50 for internet 100 (150 not available yet) but then of course a message came up saying I wasn't eligible because I opted for the gift but still ended up getting my unlimited internet free for a year. $15 saved/month is still $15 saved so can't complain.

Just talked to chick at Telus booth at the PNE. Looks like better deal than I have right now with Shaw. Only two issues I have is losing my e-mail address and Shaw Open. Does Telus have something similar?

My other option is to pay Shaw 2 bucks a month to keep my e-mail address and Shaw Open (I'm assuming Shaw Open is attached to my e-mail address.).

Just sick and tired of Shaw poor signal and service. Mind you, I used to be with Telus at one point. Am I jumping from the fry pan into the fire, again?

Wait, I don't care about the Shaw email...but you can pay $2/month for Shaw Open???!

Telus have it's own public WiFi, but it's no way as extensive or even a fraction of Shaw's. You don't even need to be a Telus customer for those. Just go into login page and type aweurhawier@weroweirjwe.co, agree and it connects. I have yet to see a #TELUSDirect spot in Vancouver.

For now there is only one 4k capable Pvr box so only one of your tvs will get it. They do not allow two pvrs on one account anymore it just defeats the whole purpose of whole home Pvr.
In the future I am sure they will have a regular 4K box aka non Pvr

Keep in mind folks 4K stream takes 20ish mbps so depending on what kind of service you are on the streams will be limited. On fiber you are set for life lol

Shaw's emails and Go Wifi access is tied to active internet services I believe. Not sure where you heard the $2 quote from cause I haven't heard of it before.

just a FYI, the bandwidth u use on shaw go wifi is tied to ur home internet's bandwidth amount, so u definitely need an active internet service at home to access shaw go wifi.

as for email, u can transfer it to a friend's account with active shaw internet services so u can keep the email alive... which also means u can use their shaw go wifi account LOL, but again if u do a lot of downloading on shaw go wifi u eat up their monthly bandwidth as well...

You are only allowed to have 1 PVR box in a home under the same account/network. If you order a 4K PVR box, it will replace your current PVR. All other receivers remain the same. So technically, you can only hookup and watch 4K content on 1 TV at a time.

I don't think you can keep your shaw email. but really why are you even using a shaw email address? never use ISP email address.

Two bucks a month. I have other email accounts GMail, hotmail, etc. I use the Shaw email for my auction sites.

I'm going to give Shaw a call tomorrow morning. Show them the quote from Telus and ask them what they're going to do to keep me as their customer.

Do you know anyone with shaw? If they have room see if they'll let you transfer your email to there account. I did it for my mom when she moved.
