If you are trying to use your phone as an internet connection, especially just now, you will be very disappointed. You are one of hundreds using the cellular network for tasks that weren’t expected even a month ago.
A few points:
- the Telus network runs on SaskTel towers in Saskatchewan.
- “hotspotting” at less than 512 kbps would be exceedingly painful even if allowed. The unlimited data plans really are meant to allow you to limp along on your phone until the next billing period. They are not a replacement for terrestrial internet.
- you can exit your Telus contract by paying your device balance
- even terrestrial internet is slower just now. Netflix has dropped their streaming quality to reduce bandwidth consumption on the internet.
