Shawn is asking customers to check their account on My Shaw website to determine if an outage is affecting their services. An ‘Alert’ banner would notify customers of the outage. Some customers in Downtown Vancouver are also experiencing the outage and a fix is in progress. The outages were reported in Downtown Vancouver last night. “Our technicians continue to repair services through the night. We apologize for the extended disruption,” Shaw said.
