Telus is a household name across Canada considering they are one of the telecommunication giants at work right now. The main source of their competition resides in two other companies known as Rogers and Bell. Telus covers a very large spectrum of the number of services they provide that range from mobile phone services and plans, satellite TV, Optik TV, VoIP solutions and internet services. Considering that Telus is a company that has gained so much notoriety we expect nothing but great things from them. However, that can only be found out after a proper review of their residential internet plan! The headquarters of Telus can be found at 555 Robson St Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 3K9 Canada.
Telus is currently offering a promotion which will last to June 1st of 2015. This promotion will allow new subscribers to pay a smaller monthly amount on the internet plan they opt into. This review will focus on the Internet 15 plan that Telus has to offer. This plan comes with download speeds of up to 15 mbps, and upload speeds of up to 1 mbps. This plan also has a usage cap of 150 GBs per month and the promotional value allows users to pay $48 per month for the first 6 months, and $63 subsequently. For all that Telus has to offer, the pricing on their plans isn’t exactly economical.
Take Distributel for example, they offer the same exact plan which comes with 15 mbps download speeds, 1 mbps upload speeds and a cap of 150 GBs for $32.99 per month, and if you want an unlimited transfer cap with this plan it would cost $47.99 a month! TekSavvy is offering unlimited internet at the same speeds, for the promotional price that Telus has to offer, but without any promotion or extra subsequent charges.
Upon reaching the maximum limit on their usage, Telus consumers can buy a bandwidth bucket for $5 which allows for an extra usage of 50 GBs. This price isn’t bad all considering the overage charges that many other providers offer.
When everything is said and done, Telus is a company that is flourishing and will continue to do so in the near future. However, the plans that they offer, aren’t entirely consumer friendly. The comparison between TekSavvy and Telus residential plans is proof enough to show that Telus is trying to gouge whatever they possibly can from their existing customers and those that they will acquire in the future!
