Telus does not offer hot spots....

 

Telus Optik does offer discounted cellular mobility so you use your phone, tablet, or laptop anywhere without needing to look for a hotspot.  I love being able to use my devices on a moving bus.... without needing to be stuck at a single location for internet access.

 

A warning.... public wifi like Shaw hotspots are UNSECURED.  Hope you are using a VPN to encrypt your activities from data eavesdroppers harvesting your user id's, passwords, and surfing activities.

Why doesn't Shaw offer mobile communications like Telus? They bought spectrum in the 2008 auction but have not used it.

Shaw no longer has any plans of setting up a wireless network.  They are going the wifi route instead.
