Would someone from Winnipeg, in SHAW explain the difference (upgrades) that have taken place at SHAW in Winnipeg?

The reason i ask is that I've seen adds relating to the "new" SHAW GIG Internet on Gateway 2.0.

I thought there was GIG Internet at SHAW for years already???

Anyway...much obliged if someone would explain the "new" benefits for these upgrades with regards to Internet and TV.

Does anyone have the Shaw XB7 (Gateway 2.0) Modem and actually get wifi 6 (AX wifi) broadcasting???
Shaw has the adjustments locked down and greyed out for me, but this is what they have my modem set at:
2.4 Band Supported Protocols: G and N...Security WPA2-PSK (AES)
5.0 Band Supported Protocols: A, N and AC...Security WPA2-PSK (AES)
There is no AX (wifi 6) being broadcast and Shaw refuses to acknowledge any issues.
I also don't understand why they don't use WPA3 Security as it's far superior.
And yes...I have AX (wifi 6) devices...6 in all.
Anyone?
