Shaw Communications Inc. has launched a new $49 bundle for basic Internet, cable and phone services, Cartt.ca reported Tuesday. The basic bundle will offer analog cable TV, a home telephone line and a 300 Kbps Internet service for $49, Peter Bissonnette, the company's president, told Cartt. On a monthly basis, the cost for each service averages $13, the company said. Bissonnette said the bundle’s Internet service is not broadband but it is the same as the company’s former Lite service. The basic Internet service won’t necessarily allow users to stream Internet video but would permit web browsing. Shaw’s announcement comes shortly after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) launched a new “Connect-2-Compete” broadband initiative. The FCC’s broadband program will bring computers and Internet service for $10 per month to families who qualify for the U.S. National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Shaw said customers do not have to qualify for its low cost bundle, what it calls the “Triple Play” bundle.
