Increasing cable / internet costs

Discussion created by mel998 on Sep 29, 2017

It's that time of year again, and cable prices have increased.  I've scaled down on cable as much as I'm comfortable, so my next service to cut back on is: internet.  I'm either reducing what I have or switching out altogether.  Shaw seems to offer few options without increasing and paying more than what I'm paying at the moment ($80/month).  Has anyone had any luck with other cable providers? Has anyone actually reduced their internet service successfully with Shaw?  I find it rather amusing that when I look at their plans, only MORE of everything is offered when I actually need much less.  

Thoughts are appreciated. 

There are a few other providers in the city, Tekksavvy, Distributel etc., - anyone have any experience with someone other than these cable giants ?
