Shaw must be running some business intelligence/data analysis tools that tells them that some customers just aren't very price sensitive and their revenue will be substantially higher if they milk those customers while appeasing the price sensitive customers with time limited offers. I don't know anything about Shaw's cost of doing business, but I suspect that even at the teaser rates they're still profitable.I guess they are trying to find that threshold where they can charge the most without causing their customer base to change too much.
I was told that I only get two outlets free and they started charging me $5.95 for additional outlets. I have basic cable, high speed internet, and the cantonese package.After the rate adjustment basic cable should only be $38.95 plus tax. If a customer pays extra for additional outlets one option that can be recommended is adding phone or internet as the extra outlets are then free (up to a total of 4 outlets) so often you save with the new service and your bill may actually go down instead of up.
