said by South_of_22:It's funny you say that as what's gonna happen when Netflix increases the quality of their streams or starts offering 4k streaming? Just because it works for you now doesn't mean the 500gb you were promised when you signed up won't be important and shouldn't be honoured. said by anhloc:
Confirmed that HS/Optik 50 plans will be reduced from 500GB to 400GB of usage come Feb 1, 2013.
I can live with 400gigs per month.
With Netflix being the biggest bandwidth hog in our house, we use 350gigs on average per month. Less in summer months for obvious reasons.
I forget who posted it, and which thread it was, but someone said that one of the Telus reps they spoke to on the phone said one of the reasons for the reduction of monthly usage caps was also due to people pirating.
I guess everyone with a Netflix account is a pirate in Telus, Shaws, Bells, Eastlinks etc etc. eyes.
Honestly, Telus should offer data packages on top of the caps.
$10 for every 100gigs. and not $2per gig in overage charges (if they ever enforce it)
