Think of us as your partner in connectivity.
We've changed a lot since 1971 when we delivered more choice to our first cable customers. Our family of companies now includes Shaw Media, Shaw Business, Shaw Direct, Shaw Tracking and Shaw Broadcast Services and most recently, the addition of WIND. We're a company on the move, and we're as nimble and customer focused as we've always been.
We own and operate a leading national network made up of 860,000 kilometers of fibre that we are continually upgrading and improving – we have invested over $4 Billion over the past five years to build a superior network that meets your growing demand for connectivity. That means privacy, reliability and speed for your home and business.
We've grown to serve more than 6 million people across the country, but some things will never change. We are proud to be a Canadian-run company with strong values. Every one of our employees lives and works in the same communities as our customers. They are the heart of our business, passionate problem solvers who are working for you.
