Free bump from Internet 75 to 175?

Helpful Neighbour

Has anybody else noticed their PureFibre Internet 75 was bumped to 175 Mbps? I noticed this in early August while running a speed test. At first, I thought it was a glitch but it has stayed at that speed for a couple weeks now. I've been subscribed to PureFibre 75 in Vancouver for about a year.



You are not the only one that has noticed a bump in speed:


I live in Vancouver too and switched over to Telus in April. For the first 2 months I was getting the normal speeds that you should get with the Telus Internet 75 package but in early June I noticed that my readings had almost doubled and as of today I'm still getting test results around 170 Mbps for both upload and download. I suppose one day everything will go back to normal so I guess we should just enjoy the extra power while it lasts.

You're right, my account shows the 150 Mbps down/up service as well. I guess 75 is too "slow" for basic fiber these days.


Here in my neighbourhood in calgary i just got fiber installed. Wasnt told it was ready.. just noticed our "internet 150" on copper/coax was always doing 135 download, 42- upload area MAX for 6-7 yrs, and all of a sudden I was doing upwards 180s download, 70s upload. It was because traffic lifted and went to fiber, booked my apt that day and got it installed the next day! 1500/1500 with a 2.5gbps motherboard with Z490 unify from msi, cat6 550mhz cable only 20 ft long, plugged direct into the 10gbps port at the hub they supplied at my electrical panel area- gets 1056mbps download and only 942 upload.. everything on the computer is configured proper. Modem also. Brand new cat6 550mhz cable.. waiting on my call back.. I get that theres some wiggle room but eh... shouldnt be this bad... 


I noticed today on my Telus Account page it now says this:


Plan details

This includes:

  • 75 Mbps download, 75 Mbps upload

However when I run the Telus Internet Speed Test it shows that I'm still getting around 160 Mbps for download speeds and 170 Mbps for upload speeds

anybody on fibre that is 25-75M plans now get 150M same costs. You are still limited on your monthly data plan. So if you are on 75M plan you are allowed 550G/month I believe but you get the faster speeds. 

I actually have unlimited data right now ( no big deal as I usually am just under 100 GB every month ) but that might only be for the duration of my initial 2-year deal with Telus.


EDIT: I just checked my service agreement and my free unlimited internet usage deal does end when my 2-year bundle deal ends. Right now I am getting charged $20/month for this add-on which is then credited each month.
