Slow Internet speeds, especially through a WiFi connection, can sometimes be resolved by resetting your Shaw Internet modem. To do this, locate the Internet modem in your home and unplug it from power for 30 seconds and then reconnect it. After a few minutes, your Internet connection will be restored and you can check and re-test your internet speeds at speedtest.shaw.ca to confirm the solution.
