What is the value of "Unlimited Internet?"

dank
Just Moved In

I have paid in advance for a full year of internet and home phone service. Every other month or so I get bandwidth "overage" warnings trying to upsell me on "unlimited internet" for an additional $15/mo. which was not an option with my annual plan. When I do get "overage fees" they are only $5. Why would I benefit from paying $15 then? To stop the "warnings"? Will my internet speeds increase? I often notice outages and slowdowns that seem to coincide with the "overage warnings." Can I possibly have a relationship with Telus that is not based on them squeezing the internet pipeline and trying to spin their fees as something other than extortion?

Unlikely your pipeline is being squeezed in the instance you describe. If you only see $5 of overage, then obviously paying more makes no sense.

The Unlimited internet plan for $15 is more for people going way over their allowed monthly bandwidth.  If you're only going over a little bit and being charged $5 extra then it's not worth it for you at this point to upgrade to that plan.
