Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I have experienced sending messages when at the Easthills Mall. As well have experienced the same problem when at the DairyQueen in Chestermere.
Terrible customer service chat
Not happy I have tried for the last month to connect with the Shaw go wifi and chatting today with one of your agents was just terrible - no help whatsoever- terrible customer service- I have been a customer for about 15 years - maybe it is time to look for other wifi companies - and tv and phone - not impressed at all!!
