    @Shawhelp Ok hanging up - have been on the phone/waiting for call back and now listening to music for 1h50min now. 1st in line for over 30min. I'll be filing a complaint with Commission for Complaints for Telecom-Television Services (CCTS). Not cool @Shawhelp - and not helpful at all.

  • armysgt56 Miles (@armysgt56) reported

    @beccamitchell02 @Shawhelp They just fixed my problem in less than 30 minutes. Try them again. Ask for Darren.

  • SoZexzi Zexzi (@SoZexzi) reported

    imagine paying for 600 down and 25 up and only getting 250-300 down and 3 up would be me 🙃 @Shawhelp

  • KarinSemperIT Karin Gerritsen (@KarinSemperIT) reported

    @shawhelp live chat: after authentication can up/renew existing services but to cancel some I have to call in. 360 people in front of me!

  • beccamitchell02 becca mitchell (@beccamitchell02) reported

    @Shawhelp @armysgt56 My cable guide is down too, and my OnDemand isn’t working. I did send a Dm hours ago and haven’t heard back. This is basic stuff. I hope you have a plan to reimburse us for the inconvenience.

  • baileymccray Bailey McCray (@baileymccray) reported

    @Shawhelp please help me.. my internet isn’t working .. it keeps telling me my password is wrong.. I’ve tried it multiple times!

    Checking out @Shawhelp deals. online says 89/mth yr 1, 129/mth yr 2. my friends comp says 129/mth for 2 yr and the shaw agent is telling me 159/mth for 2 yr. Get your data straight Shaw this is terrible

  • mitzygirl10 Karen🦋💗#IstandwithMelissa💜#LoveAlways♘♐🇨🇦 (@mitzygirl10) reported

    😦I'm missing it bc the @Shawhelp Cable went out & they're trying to help restore service asap....🙁 Way to go Scheif! 2 so far!😉

  • DavydS7 Davyd Stebelsky (@DavydS7) reported

    @Shawhelp called Shaw about PSLd error showing on Shaw box yesterday. Never got a call back, and issue is still happening. Tried calling again today, and still no call back. Calling a customer back is just common sense.

  • katchu777 Kathleen Chung (@katchu777) reported

    @ShawInfo terrible customer service. Attempting to get a human on the phone to reconnect my mother in laws service is a joke. Automated message indicated 35-45 minute wait...I hung up after waiting 1hr 40 minutes. Ridiculous!!!

  • medimanx me (@medimanx) reported

    @shawhelp. My cable internet has been out since at least 0400 I called and I was told there is an outage in my area. Still nothing 4 hours later. Ps. Update your website which says no outages

  • eryngo_bragh Eryn 🍁 (@eryngo_bragh) reported

    @Shawhelp Yeah in Aberdeen, that would explain it! I did check for outages and nothing had shown up but to be fair that was last night when it first happened. I'm going to assume my issue is related to that and I can probably get off hold

  • ballantyne10 Rory Ballantyne (@ballantyne10) reported

    @Shawhelp experiencing problems with guide not showing programs

  • _chrisvb Chris (@_chrisvb) reported

    @Shawhelp I woke up this morning and my internet is working. Thanks for being so on top of things. It was only down for 5 days.

  • SmuggyBear80 Indigenous Man (@SmuggyBear80) reported

    @billybobjoedir7 @ShawInfo @TELUSsupport Yeah no problem! Shaw sucks. I have always had issues with it.

  • mother_abby Mother Abigail 🌙 (@mother_abby) reported

    @billybobjoedir7 @ShawInfo @TELUSsupport Ugh we turned to Telus as soon as they installed the FibreOptic cable on my road. Never looked back.

  • rkannegi Richard Kannegiesser (@rkannegi) reported from Thunder Bay, Ontario

    @RobinsDonutsCAN @Shawhelp @CineplexMovies @Tbaytel Want to offer #freeWiFi to your #customers, DON'T GO WITH #SHAWOPEN, since it's far from being #open. #Tbaytel does much better at having #public #guests. Meanwhile, with #Shaw, if you're not a Shaw #customer, NO #WIFI for you!

  • simonwils Simon Wilson (@simonwils) reported

    @Shawhelp I'm switching shortly to a Bluecurve Gateway. If there are still problems then I'll see about getting a tech come out.

  • vancouverrob Rob Young (@vancouverrob) reported

    @Shawhelp FYI. Your new support messaging vs. chat (via the app) takes me 4x LONGER to get any resolution. It's horrible. You need to change it back to chat. ASAP.

  • islandlinux islandlinux (@islandlinux) reported

  • smashingguy smashingguy (@smashingguy) reported

  • RobYCW Rob S (@RobYCW) reported

    @Shawhelp hello, just an FYI, our gateways in the v2r 5y4 of chilliwack went down, was about 5 min before we could use them again, had to pull power for 10 count than plug back in to get them going again.

  • KNVBCMNT C-Money (@KNVBCMNT) reported

    @Shawhelp Well, at this point a disconnection from your service is the only thing I’m interested in. So I guess I’ll continue to hold... #goingon3hours #stolemyevening.

  • gqkeroppi Horace (@gqkeroppi) reported from Edmonton, Alberta

    @Shawhelp I can’t access my TV guide on my gateway portal, and I can’t record any TV programs because of it. Please advise as to when this problem will be resolved as it is very inconvenient

  • KNVBCMNT C-Money (@KNVBCMNT) reported

    @ShawInfo Hey Shaw: I’ve been on hold for 2 fricken hours tonight split up between 2 different transfers. You said that your customer service was better than @Telus, but now this disgruntled Shaw customer is going to find out the old fashioned way. See ya. #switchingtotelus

    @Shawhelp Wow. 845th in line with a 35-45 minute wait for a returning customer on the 1-888 number and rang straight through for a "new customer wanting to sign up". You should be ashamed of yourselves
