Monday 13 January 2020 | 16:31 CET | News
Canadian operator Shaw Communications added customers and lifted revenues during its fiscal first quarter to end November, but the net profit continued lower, mainly due to the company's investments in Corus, divested last year.

Shaw added that with the introduction of Freedom Home Internet, "we have reinforced our dual brand strategy that enables us to effectively segment the broadband market."
