I was checking the Telus website, and noticed that "Optik Internet" wasn't mentioned anywhere.
I chose my province and city, and also "checked availability" by entering my home phone number in. Here is a picture of the main page of the Telus website, where Optik Internet was previously mentioned.
I'm currently subscribed to Optik High Speed Internet. So what's the deal? Have they phased it out or merged it with Telus Internet?
Also, Telus has still not updated its website with the availability of Optik 50, and the awesome new hardware choices (V2000H) and features such as loop bonding available to Telus customers.
So does this also mean that they will no longer be offering fiber optic services to new customers? Or is it simply just a name change. And if this is the case, why not rename "Optik TV" to Telus TV. Then, they will have "Telus TV" and "Telus Satellite TV".
The reason the name change and merging of products is solely to mask a rate increase of $8 on the old optik Internet packages. What's working is it is confusing people and people still think the service is true fibre optic. When optik became optik there was a higher increase then.
Telus reports it financial info for TV under Telus TV and doesn't distinguish between optik or satellite tv.
The V2000 doesn't have "awesome new hardware choices"...
