Calgary-based Shaw Communications Inc. is providing free access to Shaw Go WiFi – Canada’s largest WiFi network – across Western Canada due to the coronavirus situation.
Until further notice, Shaw will give everyone complimentary and unrestricted access to Shaw Go WiFi network hotspots regardless of whether or not they’re a Shaw customer.
