Not getting advertised speed with SHAW

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, i been noticing a super slow internet speed l8tly. speedtest.net is giving me a consistent 150mbs down BUT im paying for 600. Im connected with CAT6 cable and my pc i not even 6 months old. Now i contacted shaw and they said its a limitation of my hardware in my pc wich i call bullshit on. Then he said that it could be my router to wich i said i do not use a router i use the modem SHAW provided me for my speed wich is a a BlueCurv  here is a link to there pos im using. Any ideas on what i should do? No switching providers is not a option as they all suck in my area worst than shaw.

My MOBO is a MSI B450M Bazooka V2 with a Ryzen 3600

Shaws infrastructure is shit basically everywhere


I'm gonna lean on that it just started slowing down recently? I'd say it's because everyone's at home and peak hour is 24/7 now

I know it's anecdotal but here's what I'm getting on Shaw in Calgary on my 600 plan



It's probably just the traffic on the backhaul from everyone being at home.
