Re: [BC] Telus Turbo 25 Availability in Vancouver


Thanks for your replies!

None of the people that you can call in to will have any knowledge of infrastructure upgrades or dates or plans. That topic has been covered here countless times.

A CO covers a large area. Odds are one of the boxes closer to your house that services that small an area is awaiting an upgrade still.

I didn't realize this topic was covered so much. I did do some searching before my original post, but, I have to admit, it wasn't extensive.

I think I've identified two of the boxes in my area (bound by 4 major streets), and, half of that area now has Turbo 25 availability. Sadly, I was looking for any changes to either to the two boxes that I found, and neither looked changed on the exterior. I was given the impression that a DSLAM upgrade often times required a larger cabinet.

There's tons of places in even Downtown Vancouver where Turbo 25 isn't available. I'd just switch to Shaw if you're concerned about speeds.

Wow, thanks for that information. I would have thought that all of downtown would have 100% availability by now.

I guess I don't feel as bad then

The real kicker in all of this is that I negotiated Turbo 25 with Loyalties, and at the time, they said that it was available for me. Well, here I am paying for Turbo 25 now, and it still isn't available to me yet.
