Just a heads up for those with the ZTE Smart Hub rural plans, Telus is no longer offering the Public IP option due to "Security Concerns". When I brought up the fact that the Smart Hub is Telus's (only) offering for Rural Internet and really the only viable option in terms of speed but yet it's severely locked down compared to a normal internet plan, I basically got told I can deal with it or find another provider as they don't have any idea if they will even bring it back and when I inquired as to whether Wired Internet would get brought out to where we currently live, I got told that "there are no plans to do so as it's not financially viable", despite living like 5 minutes from a hamlet that has wired internet available.
Can't say I'm surprised but just a heads up for those considering the Smart Hub, if control over your internet and options to run things like a Plex server or other items matter to you, don't go with the Smart Hub, it is so locked down it's not even funny.

I see this post is about a year old! Any update on whether Telus offers this option for smart hubs yet?

Yeah. I’ve had smart hub almost 6 months now! I have called them a few times as well, And that’s the exact same outcome I get as well. I sure hope they can offer or change something soon for us that don’t have access to reliable high speed Internet.

Hi : I am trying to get the smarthub to work with my ubituiti setup. Can you please share how you configured the smarthub and ubiquitin router to work together ? Thanks
