ABOUT SHAW

Shaw is a leading Canadian telecommunications company focused on connecting its customers to the world through a best-in-class, seamless connectivity experience.


Over 50 years ago, JR Shaw founded the company under the name Capital Cable Television Co. with a simple goal: provide customers with more value and more choice.


Since connecting its first customer in 1971, Shaw has enhanced customer experiences by bringing exceptional and competitively priced products and services to Canadians. Today, Shaw continues to shape the telecommunications landscape in Canada by providing its customers with internet, wireless, video, and home phone services.


Canadians increasingly need and expect an always-on, seamless connectivity experience. Shaw has created fast, expansive, and resilient networks to power it.


With its extensive Fibre+ network, Shaw has built one of the most advanced hybrid fibre-coaxial networks in North America to accommodate customers’ changing technological needs. Since 2013, Shaw has invested nearly $30 billion to build, upgrade, and expand its extensive Fibre+ and Fast LTE networks and services.


Through Shaw Mobile and Freedom Mobile, Shaw is disrupting the Canadian wireless industry, delivering better value and choice, and enhancing customers’ experiences by offering more innovative and affordable products and plans.


Shaw Business provides companies of all sizes with enterprise-level, industry-leading connectivity solutions along with expert advice to help meet business objectives.


By combining its wireless footprint with the strength of its Fibre+ network, Shaw is helping to usher in new technologies — including 5G and multi-gig internet speeds — that will keep Canadians better connected than ever before.


Shaw provides individuals, families, and businesses with simple and powerful technology that gives them superior coverage and connectivity both in and out of the home and workplace.


With Canada’s largest WiFi network, its in-home Fibre+ Internet experience, and growing LTE wireless network, Shaw provides customers with the reliable and fast connections they need today and for the future.
