Shaw Nitro now in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver

A whopping $150 a month for 100 Mbps downloads. No word on upload speeds or cap.

Nitro pricing in Saskatoon, Victoria and Winnipeg is $106.95 so the price difference is huge.

Wow that must of just had a price drop, when I looked at it last week on Shaw it was 250
150 is still a ton of money for internet. For me anyways. Im sure some people will sign up right away.

I have a photographic memory, trouble is most times the lens cap is on.

The price is much HIGHER in the new cities but you get higher download speeds

For Nitro, it says on the Shaw site:

100 Mbps down
5 Mbps up
400 GB/month transfer

There is also High Speed Warp:

25 Mbps down
2 Mbps up
150 GB transfer

Hugh, last week on shaws page
Nitro 100 Mbps down
5 Mbps up
400 GB/month transfer was advertized at 250 per month.
Thats why I was suprised by the 100 dollar price drop

Highspeed warp 25mpbs down is at 96 per month though this speed used to be called nitro.

Sorry to list prices. I can remove them if you want.

I think there is some confusion.

Nitro was indeed 25mbps before the introduction of 100mbps service.

Now the 25mbps service is called Warp and the 100mbps service is called Nitro (in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver). Don't know about Saskatchewan/Manitoba.

In HD, even the commercials are enjoyable!
