II swicthed to Telus from Shaw due to move to a new condo. Speedtest results mostly ping of 8 and download speed of 25. BTW, I am using Telus 150. Today after reading all these discussions, I did another test and suddenly I have this. Telus is listening? Thank you Telus
Switched today They also now have 750/750 Plan and 1 Gbit with a deal for 95$ for 2 years in Calgary Its nice to be back to TELUS FAMILY!
Never knew T3200M can work in SFP10 Mode I gues it means 10 Gigabit and now no ONT. Fibre Optic Cable goes straight to Advanced router. One of the cleanest install I have ever seen. Tech even removed coax cables to clean up clutter and put even my equipment in good spot and secured to the wall which was nice of him.
SFP+ to be precise.
Did 1000 speed test s today was trying to squeeze 1 ms Ping... it stuck on god bless ZERO I couldn't believe my eyes... 4K is nice guide is very responsive . For first few hours there was slight delay between STBs but I guess it was adjusting to the network and 3 hour after setup delay vanished. No more blur or fade on YouTube or Netflix which Shaw does have wheb I watch videos on mobile phone or tablet Shaw had fade and bluer slight but visible .
Too bad Telus hasn't responded in price. Now I'm really wondering if upload speed is worth it. I just signed up for 2 years with Telus on the 300/300 for $70 a month, but looks like I can get the 300 down for $50 a month or 600 down for $68 since they are doubling the speeds and including the $250 credit. Even with the contract, I'd make up the cancellation fee in the first year and save another $240 on the second year.
I asked Telus about this through a chat and here was the response:
"Ok, I have checked our documentation for the new plan tiers, and I'm afraid that we do not currently have plans to double up on speeds in the same way that Shaw did. I'm very sorry about that, as it's surely not the answer that you were hoping for."
I followed up with TELUS today (Dec 10) and it appears now TELUS wont be matching Shaw's doubling of 150/300... or so Frontline Care has been told.
The rep was eager to sell me TELUS 750 - but as an average household... 300 is sufficient... just would have been nice to get 600 for the same price.
Tbh, i think the numbers are more like propaganda in a lot of ads. I currently have shaw 150 (supposedly upgraded to 300 they said in email and on bill), with full bundle it is about $90 just for the internet and all the speed tests i do show i get between 70-110 download and 9-12 upoad and 37ms is my fastest ping(tested 4am when only i was up and connected on 1 device), and that is only to a calgary location for ping. My game ping is usually about 62. This blows, and i am seriously about to switch to Telus since your ping of zero is making me jelly.
For anyone who does not consume their cap, their usage is effectively unlimited. While unlimited data sounds like a wonderful thing, if Telus sets the cap at a level where the great majority of customers never reach that level of consumption, unlimited has value only for high usage users.
If you notice in February they have upgraded guide to be all black for people like you complain they can see, also Ill take Optik tv anyday over crappy cable with Shaw with minimum HD Channels and Old outdated Equipment, Glad we don't have shaw, ive been to peoples houses and there TV is a joke
