Shaw Communications is opening its services to all Canadians to keep them better informed about the COVID-19 situation.
Paul McAleese, the incoming president of Shaw Communications Inc., released a statement about the company’s decision, saying the company is making available its Shaw Go WiFi, Canada’s largest WiFi network, to everyone, regardless of whether they are a Shaw customer. He added that Shaw does not have data caps on internet plans, meaning people will not face data restrictions if they need to work from home or communicate with their loved ones.
“We are watching the COVID-19 situation closely as the health and safety of our employees and customers is our number one priority. The crisis posed by the threatened spread of the virus has also revealed how much we all rely on our connectivity – whether to stay connected to our workplace, get in touch with friends and family, or to keep our families informed and entertained,” he stated.
Bravo Shaw for making this move.
Ironically, this past week I have been at the beginning stages of shopping for a cheaper internet and tv provider. I am a bit more reluctant to do so now.
