Currently I am with Telus for my high-speed DSL connection. It works ok for me. I get about 2.5Mbps/650Kbps speeds. But I have noticed that Shaw offers 7Mbps/1Mbps speeds for the same price as what I am paying with Telus. Now I have done my research and have found that the pro’s with Shaw are they have good customer service and provide better speeds. The pro’s with Telus are they wont give you a hard time if you go over your monthly usage (60GB/mo), which I regularly do. If I thought that Shaw wouldn’t care about my bandwidth usage then I would probably switch pretty quickly. However for the time being I think I’ll stay with Telus.
Somehow this got me into thinking about having both Shaw and Telus coming into my house. I could have the benefit of having higher speeds for my every day browsing and downloading and use the Telus connection for some of the heaver bandwidth usage. Through this I stumbled across Multi-WAN routers. These routers allow you to hook up 2 or more WAN’s (high-speed connections) into a single network.
