    The Telus push?

    Advertisement



    My wife had recently shown me this post about Telus. If this is happening behind the scenes it would make a lot of people like me, jump ship as soon as T-Mobile opens shop in Canada. As it stands right now I am paying almost double the money to Telus then what T-mobile is speculated to offer in early 09 (unlimited blackberry for $75.00 a month), there is no need to rock the boat now!

    From Slashdot.com:

    TELUS Forcing Customers Off Unlimited Plans

    Posted by kdawson on Tuesday August 26, @05:42PM
    from the can't-eat-all-that dept.

    "Canadian telco TELUS sold a bunch of (expensive) Unlimited EV-DO aircard accounts last winter and are now summarily canceling them or forcing people to switch to much less valuable plans. TELUS is citing 'Violations,' but their Terms Of Service (see #5) are utterly vague and self-contradictory. The TELUS plans were marketed as being unlimited, without the soft/hard caps that the other providers had at the time. They were purchased by a lot of rural Canadians who had no other choice except dialup. Now TELUS is forcing everyone to switch from a $75 Unlimited plan to a $65 1GB plan, and canceling those who won't switch. Have a look at the thread at Howardforums, a discussion of the TELUS ToS (in red at the bottom), an EV-DO blogger who's been a victim, a post at Electronista, and of course Verizon getting fined for doing the same thing! Michael Geist has taken an interest as well."

    Rogers is doing it too. Everyone who signed the 6GB plan is being forced down to 1GB. I just got my bill for one month, and I only used 47MB. Like I'll ever use 1GB in a month, so I couldn't care less really.

    A typical move by Telus, as soon as I can dump this mob I will. Via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
