So anyone know if Telus will ever offer better plans? Koodo just released some killer plans that Telus Loyalty/Retention can't even match (closest I got them was $15/mo over Koodo...) Telus doesn't even offer nationwide minutes by default either yet charges more for local minutes... I own my own phone also.
Koodo has unlimited nationwide minutes and 1GB for $45/mo right now... so tempted to switch...
In Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the big three have VERY competitive plans because of MTS / SaskTel charging far less for theirs. That's one reason my coworker from Manitoba still has her plan from there even though she lives in Alberta.
Telus has some pretty pathetic coverage areas too. Less than 12 blocks away from a tower they have it's like the twilight zone. Slow data, and weak cell signal go in a building an forget about the phone even working. I can't count the number of times even in an arena NO SIGNAL which is 8 blocks from the tower. Countless people have complained to no avail.
Telus suggest use the app to let them know about it. Ya that works great 4 years and still nothing has been done! 300MB data is a absolute JOKE for $20. Considering half the time LTE barely works around the city i live in not sure what we pay for.
I'll stick to wifi when i can. I even use my friends shaw wifi go account so when ever i travel i can sponge of it. Telus wifi hot spots again are like a twilight zone. Sure Shaw sucked for TV, rate increases and downright 90's internet speeds but shawgo was kind of handy.
I couldn't care less about unlimited local calling, or national. It's all about data now a days and telus knows this. Why they offer such pathetic overpriced plans. They seem to get worse every time they roll out some new scam promotion.
