Shaw Communications and the City of Winnipeg announced that the Shaw Wi-Fi network is expanding to include even more popular Winnipeg locations like libraries, arenas, recreation facilities and community centres.

The expansion will give Shaw customers in Winnipeg Wi-Fi access thanks to partnerships with municipalities, small businesses and property managers. Shaw Wi-Fi is a complimentary service available to Shaw Internet customers.

“It’s vital the City of Winnipeg provide its residents with the very latest in communications tools,” said Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz. “I know that busy families are going to appreciate Wi-Fi access in arenas and community centres. We look forward to working with Shaw Communications to keep enhancing the out-of-home Internet experience.”

“We are thrilled to work with the City of Winnipeg to extend the broadband Internet experience for Shaw customers living in and travelling to Winnipeg,” said Peter Bissonnette, President, Shaw Communications Inc. “Combined with our leadership in the TV Everywhere category and the popularity of WiFi enabled devices, this new agreement will provide our customers in Winnipeg with an unparalleled online experience, no matter where they might be in the city.”

Great news for those with limited data plans. But it seems that more and more cellphone providers are offering 6GB data plans at decent rates. Pair that up with Internet Tethering and LTE and you pretty much already have internet access anywhere you want on any device you want.
