We can think of the internet as a digital highway.
I see that reasonably frequently, the 250 mbps connection I pay for is giving me 250 mbps when I do a speed test. Sometimes it is 120, sometimes it is 220, but I now get 250 or a little above.
The problem is that Shaw, as my ISP, is responsible to provide the highway past Shaw's data center. It is actually supposed to go to THE INTERNET.
I go to speedof.me, which is in Seattle, and I never get anywhere near what I am supposed to get.
I am sure Shaw will say "they are not responsible" but my point is that the Shaw highway that is the "last mile" to the internet is getting worse and worse.
I got 69.05 mbps on the Seattle speed test.
So I can test Vancouver, Edmonton, etc. and get not too bad speeds. But that's not where my "internet" needs are. I am actually paying for "internet access" not a closed network within Shaw.
So let's get the rest of the road built so it isn't so overcrowded. This has been going on for years not. Fix it please.
