It's not only Telus, but I guess Telus gets my frustration because they are who I am currently with.
I've been living in Canada for the last 3 years, and the one thing that I have never ever gotten over, is the price that Canadian phone companies charge for Data. I was so spoilt in the Uk, getting Data over there is like getting water, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
50gb data for what would be the equivalent of about 150 dollars roughly, that's including the call package, and other features.
That is just a single example but have a look at data prices around the world, and compare to Canada, it's so unfair.
It's such a hard pill to swallow when I'm told that I have to pay $25 dollars for 1GB of data. What the hell can anyone do with 1gb. And not so much that, but why so expensive.
The thing is im sure it's super easy to complain and rant and express by disgust at the seemingly unfair pricing. But what I really want to know is, if the pricing for data can't be adjusted to fit more in line with the fairness of many places around then world. Then at least give us some transparency as to why.
'Our data prices are high, because we have a slower infrastructure on our signal strength which means higher costs for... blah blah blah' I know that made no sense, but you see my point.
If you can't adjust pricing to make it more reasonable then at least a good explanation for this astronomical daylight robbery, could make it easier to digest. I don't understand how small companies like mobilicity, and wind can offer great data packages and Telus cannot. awful
