Shaw is happy to sponsor the 2021 AVICC Virtual Conference
This past year has been like no other, where local governments have had to pivot, embrace new technologies and new ways of connecting with their residents, local businesses and stakeholders. Recognizing the importance of accessing high speed internet, during the pandemic, Shaw more than doubled download internet speeds throughout the province and launched new services to strengthen network security for those working remotely.
At the start of the pandemic, Shaw introduced our Brighter Communities grants to support local charities that are making our communities brighter. Shaw donated over $1M to Canadian Food Banks, opened up thousands of WiFi hotspots throughout the province, allowing free access to the public, and donated devices with free service so less fortunate could stay connected to loved ones and access the services they needed to navigate the new norm. As a municipal representative, are you aware of a charity organization doing good work in your local community? Is there a non-profit organization or a community initiative that would benefit from additional support? If so, we ask that you please let us know.
While we all continue to do our part to safeguard the health of our communities, we want to thank all our elected officials for the time and effort you dedicate to your municipality, to keeping your residents safe, and providing the local services we all need to get through this together. If Shaw can be of further support to your local government, in providing services or partnering on infrastructure projects, please reach out to Kiersten Enemark, our Director of Government Relations in British Columbia.
Shaw Mobile is a new type of wireless service available to customers in British Columbia that is built with Internet at the center of the experience. By integrating our advanced 4G LTE network with hundreds of thousands of Shaw Go WiFi hotspots, we are providing speed and coverage that enables total connectivity across Western Canada. And that’s not all — along with smart rate plans and flexible data options, Shaw Internet subscribers receive industry-leading discounts on their mobile service simply for being a customer.
While helping our customers and employees stay safe and connected, we’ve seen how COVID-19 has impacted Canadians. We created #ShawHelps to invest in our communities in their time of need.
