Shaw's SW internet service has actually been so bad they gave me a $150 credit, thats the most I've ever got, but I'd really just prefer to have reliable internet since I am working from home. The worst was last week between 12PM-3PM I had 3 zoom meetings and had to miss them as my internet was down

Yeah so is this just Shaw's service level now? My wifi drops out randomly, comes back, drops out comes back. It seems ok when streaming because of buffering but it drops google meets and my phone wifi gets locked out for a while.

No issues in the SW on Shaw at my place. My remote connection to work has actually gotten better in the last month and I don't get any issues during voice or video calls over the internet, including sharing my screen with coworkers.

I have Internet 75 and using a hardwired connection for my work computer. When using my phone for work video calls I haven't had any issues over WiFi either.

I had to hardwire the most important connections in the house.

Shaw Wifi seems to be ok for TV but anything else is hit and miss for speeds...

If it's your Wi-Fi randomly dropping out, that could be more about where the wireless box in your house is located.

You'd want to see if it's actually your internet failing (use a wired device like a desktop PC) or indeed wireless instability. If it's the latter, this thread is where you can find out about all the different options to install new or relocate wireless access points so they don't suck.
