Re: [BC] TELUS High Speed Turbo 25 Usage being reduced 50%
said by Symtex:I think a lot of peoples issue (and mine in particular) is the fact that we're constantly seeing price increases, and now we've had our caps halved. I suspect that overage charges are on their way, as well.
250GB is ~ 8G/day of bandwidth base on an 31 days month. that's not so bad. If you use 8G of Netflix a day, maybe you should go outside a little *wink*
If it were just overage charges (and I'm making a big assumption here, why else lower the caps? Did they realise not many people are close to them?) -- I think I would be okay with that, as the previous caps were more than reasonable. But it's most likely: halving of caps, consistent price increases, AND overage charges. That stinks.
I honestly have no idea how much bandwidth I'm currently using, TELUS doesn't provide me with a way to see it (either bill, or online) but based on conservative estimates I was probably within 15% of the cap on my plan. Now I am going to be going over it, what's going to happen?
I'm lucky where I am, I have the choice of terminating my contract (and believe me, I will fight tooth and nail not to pay the contract termination fees: I signed up based on caps.) Going with a decent provider like Novus which does caps like an ISP should (separate up, and download caps) for much less than I'm paying for TELUS now. Not everyone is able to do this, and this sucks!
The more I C, the less I see.
