    Shaw Partners With Local Artists to Brighten This Year’s Vancouver Sun Run

    Original murals created by BC-based artists will be placed at Marinaside Crescent, the Chilco Pump Station at the entrance to Stanley Park, and the Trout Lake Community Centre at John Hendry Park to celebrate this year’s Vancouver Sun Run. From April 18-30, Shaw will donate $5 to Arts Umbrella for every social media post with a photo of the murals using #ShawBrightRun. VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shaw Communications Inc. today announced it is teaming up with three talented local artists to create sidewalk murals that will celebrate the first-ever virtual Vancouver Sun Run and support Arts Umbrella – a local organization working hard to inspire the next generation of artists and creators. Commissioned by Shaw, artists Carrielynn Victor, Grace Gihm and Andrew Tavukciyan are producing three inspiring murals that reflect the Sun Run’s community spirit and evoke a sense of unity and belonging when we are physically unable to come together to celebrate. From April 18-30, the original artworks can be viewed at the Chilco Pump Station, John Hendry Park and Marinaside Crescent. For every social media post featuring one of the murals posted in that time using #ShawBrightRun, Shaw will donate $5 to Arts Umbrella to support their arts education programs, up to a total of $25,000. “Over this past year, we’ve all had to find moments of inspiration, joy and happiness to carry us through some exceptionally challenging times,” said Chethan Lakshman, Vice President, External Affairs, Shaw Communications. “Whether it is the runner who’s been training for months, a young talent who’s recently discovered their love of art, or people simply going for a stroll to enjoy some fresh air, we’re hoping all Vancouverites can safely enjoy this new artwork, reflect on the challenges they’ve overcome, and spread some goodwill to help inspire the next generation of creators in the community.” “We are so happy to partner with Shaw on this initiative,” said Tim Hopkins, Vancouver Sun Run Race Director. “It’s been a challenging year for events, so to be able to enhance the runner experience through Shaw’s mural program while contributing to such a great organization like Arts Umbrella is very important to us.” Shaw has mapped out 2.5 km and 10 km routes that will take Vancouver Sun Run participants past all three murals. Complete route details, as well as information on the artists and the inspiration behind their artwork can be found at vancouversunrun.com/ShawBrightRun All individuals who choose to visit the murals are asked to follow all public health and safety guidelines.

    Shaw Introduces Shaw Gig WiFi — Giving Western Canadians Faster, More Reliable In-Home WiFi Across More Devices

    By leveraging the Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem and next-generation WiFi 6 technology, Shaw Gig WiFi provides faster internet speeds, reduced latency and minimized interference with neighbouring WiFi networks when paired with WiFi 6-compatible devices. As the region’s leader in Gig-speed internet, Shaw becomes Western Canada’s first and only internet service provider to offer customers faster speeds with a WiFi 6-certified modem. The Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem is available to all new and existing Shaw Fibre+ Gig 1.5 customers at an exclusive, limited-time promotional price of $129 per month on a two-year ValuePlan. CALGARY, Alberta, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shaw Communications Inc. today announced the launch of Shaw Gig WiFi — leveraging the best in-home technology to give customers the faster speeds, lower latency, and more consistent WiFi signal they need to connect all their devices. “As Western Canadians continue incorporating more connected technology in their home to work, game and stream, they may be surprised that having dozens of connected devices has propelled their household into the super-user category, requiring access to a more efficient high-quality broadband connection,” said Paul Deverell, President, Consumer, Shaw Communications. "By leveraging WiFi 6 technology through Shaw’s new Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem, Shaw Gig WiFi offers better quality connections and connectivity throughout the home while supporting increased demand for speed and bandwidth today and into the future.” Available today, Shaw Gig WiFi taps into the strength and capacity of the new Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem — the powerful new WiFi 6-certified modem capable of delivering gigabit WiFi download speeds in the home. With WiFi 6, Shaw Gig WiFi connects multiple devices more efficiently than ever before, giving all members of the household the ability to connect at the same time with reduced buffering and slowdowns. The rise of connected devices in the home continues to increase, with an estimated 423.1 million devices set to enter Canadian households by 2023 versus 245.6 million in 2018, according to Cisco1. While many Canadian homes have multiple connected devices, users can experience network slow-down and congestion issues as their laptops, smartphones, smart light bulbs and security cameras all compete for WiFi bandwidth. Designed with bandwidth-heavy applications in mind, the WiFi 6-certified Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem supports the growing number of connected devices in the home by giving customers consistently fast WiFi. As the next-generation standard for WiFi, WiFi 6 offers faster throughput speeds on compatible devices, smarter WiFi coverage that results in lower WiFi latency for fast cloud and online gaming, and greater power efficiency for longer battery life for WiFi-connected devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Shaw is Western Canada's leader in Gig speed internet, with ultrafast gigabit download speeds available to over a million more homes than TELUS. The launch of the Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem comes just after Shaw was named by Ookla’s Speedtest Intelligence® as Canada’s fastest fixed broadband provider2. As of today, Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 is the only WiFi 6-capable modem available from a Western Canadian internet service provider. According to network equipment testing conducted by Kyrio, a network testing lab, Shaw’s Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 demonstrated better throughput and lower latency than TELUS’ WiFi Hub. More than 50% of all consumer premise equipment will support WiFi 6 by 2024 according to global tech market advisory firm ABI Research3. “The deployment of WiFi 6 capability marks a once-in-a-decade upgrade of WiFi technology,” said Zoran Stakic, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer, Shaw Communications. “The launch of the Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 ensures customers on our fastest internet plan get the most out of our Fibre+ network at a time when they are relying on our technology like never before.” Shaw customers living in larger homes or homes built with signal-blocking materials, such as concrete, can also add next-generation Shaw Fibre+ WiFi Pods to reduce WiFi dead spots and create their own household mesh WiFi networks. The Shaw Fibre+ Gateway 2.0 modem is available to all new and existing Shaw Fibre+ Gig 1.5 customers in the vast majority of neighbourhoods in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. Shaw Fibre+ Gig 1.5 is also available in smaller cities Shaw serves, such as Dawson Creek, B.C., Banff, Alta, and Burnaby, B.C.
