Call the cancellation line and voice your concern there.

Tell them this is unacceptable and try and milk them for a month of free cable and internet.

anyone having any problems in surrey area? I had some connection issues.. would keep getting disconnected.. but not it's a constant connection...just super slow... like high speed only not extreme or broadband 50

i wish they would have a website to show where they are having problems, that way we know shaw knows so we don't have to call in....
