Internet feels 20x faster, and now I can even watch YouTube vids on 1080 and still buffer way faster than it plays and downloads are very fast. The cable is really nice, as we get two receivers with fancy ass remotes, we can pause TV, etc.
The phone... Now I thought the problem with our house phone had to be on our end, because we had Telus send someone over to diagnose the problem 3 times, and each time the different person would say he doesn't know what's wrong, and that the problem is on our end. The person from Shaw took a look at it after some testing with devices he found out the one of the circuits was short in the box that Telus owns outside our house, and that that is why the phone wasn't working. Since that is Telus' and not Shaw's, he installed whatever he was supposed to originally, and now the phone works! Turns out the problem is on Telus' end and always has been, and we've been paying the package that include phone service from Telus the whole year the phone hasn't been working(since march of last year). That kind of irritates me, and we are going to complain about that. Anyhow, extremely happy that we switched over ^_^
With my beefy new internet I'll be able to do a lot more (lag-free) streaming of WL/OSL/MSL/etc and my own SC games, so look forward to that!
