Shaw Communications is planning to trial Gigabit Internet technology for its Canadian markets.

The technology is 10 times faster than Shaw’s High-Speed Nitro Internet service, which currently runs at 100 Mbps per second. High-Speed Nitro is offered in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.

The new service will be delivered over fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and will be able to support new and emerging Internet applications that require faster download speeds.

“This is game-changing technology,” said Peter Bissonnette, president, Shaw Communications, in a statement.

Shaw is the first provider in Canada to trial Gigabit Internet and expects to launch the trial in April 2010.
