Good News for Netflix: Shaw Raises Bandwidth Caps

Source: 

The Canadian cable operator Shaw is introducing significantly higher caps for its broadband customers, and in some cases, is even offering unlimited plans. hat’s good news for Shaw’s consumers, but it’s also an important win for Netflix, which in the past has complained about low caps in Canada.

Starting in June, Shaw’s standard 7.5 Mbps plan will come with a 125 GB cap (up from 60 GB). Meanwhile, its low-speed 1Mbps “lite” offering will have a 30 GB cap (up from 15 GB), and premium customers with a 25Mbps plan will now have a 250GB cap (up from 100GB). Customers that exceed the cap will automatically be bumped into the next tier, but revert to their previous subscription package once the month is over.
