Re: Telus Fee Increase out of nowhere!
No, collusion is where several parties talk and agree and control prices and limit choice.
Believe me, Shaw and Telus DO NOT AGREE on anything together, in fact the fighting is non stop on a daily basis.
The Telus service is in high demand (over 600,000 customers gained in the last 4 years). Raising the rates hasn't diminished that base, and Shaw is still losing customers with their inferior product.
zod----The Telus network was built for POTS over 50 years ago. TV is a recent idea, and, the network was vastly upgraded 4 years ago for TV purposes. Unfortunately, there are many pockets of the network that are not optimized yet. These are being attacked, one by one. Sometimes, they cannot be addressed at all (if you live in East Sooke, for example, you are SOL). Sometimes, you are too far from the Dslam. If you live 100m from the Dslam, you've hit the jackpot.
