I'll cancel Shaw in a heartbeat. I'm not ******* around with overages.
OOOH MY SHAW CONNECTION IS SOOOO FAST! Oh wait... overages....
At $2 per GB over my 100GB plan I'd owe $940 this month. I did 470GB over my limit this month. Me, + my 2 roommates, + extra holiday time, +steam sales = overages.
Do you think I would pay $900 in overages? Ever? No. I'll smash my rented modem on video though.....
Found some information on the Shaw website
If you exceed the usage included in your package, donít worry ó weíll notify you on your next bill and you wonít be charged. After that, you have a few options:
Upgrade to the next package level
Purchase a monthly data pack (10 GB for $5/month, 60 GB for $20/month, 250 GB for $50/month)
Maintain current plan and pay for each gigabyte used over your planís allotted amount ($1 or $2 depending on the plan)
So I guess that puts me at a BARGAIN price of $100 for overages then, plus the price of the internet package to begin with.
Although, I'm an understanding fellow, and I think that's only fair that they should charge me more for my service because they have to pay more into the Shaw pension plan.
