Re: [BC] TELUS High Speed Turbo 25 Usage being reduced 50%

I wonder if this includes the new Optik 50... since no where on the link does it mention it. If they give me a hard time about it I'll threaten to go to Shaw and call them on breach of contract since I signed up for 500gb/m and not 250.

Except when you signed up, you agreed that your service could change at any time.

Doesnt matter... Call in and say you want to cancel because of this. they will let you. You cant sign away your rights, just like even if you agree to not sue them, you can still sue them. They know this... They put terms in the contract for people who'll fall for it.

Indeed true. If anyone is indeed in a contract they can:
A) cancel w/o any terminations fee's and go else-where
B) Demand Telus honour their contract. And they have to, jusy like Bell had to when they pulled this.

If you are not in a contract, and if you complain to the CCTS and/or CRTC you should be able to stay month-to-month on a "grandfathered plan" just like Bell had to. Would be better if a bunch of you got together and filed as a group. Both the CRTC and the CCTS allows this.

Bell still has unlimited "grandfathered" plans to this day. As can be seen in the Bell forum.

Depends what the individual wants to do. If they have the balls for a fight and so forth.

Maybe one of you can contact cippic.ca about this. They were involved with the Bell fight that saw grandfathered plans honoured. But cippic tends to pick and chose their fights....

Or you can be pu.. whimps... and be walked on and whine in a forum.

For your points A and B: Cancel without fees? Honor contract? Most people don't read the TOS for their ISP and just agree when signing up. Telus does not have anything in there that guarantees bandwidth allocations will not change. Just like they don't have anything in there guaranteeing the price will not change.

Internet is not regulated by the CRTC. Any complaints to the CRTC will get no attention unless for speed throttling specifically as their complain page states. Their page also points users with internet complaints other than throttling to where they can file a complaint if their provider refuses to do anything:

»www.ccts-cprst.ca/complaints/ser···roviders

That website is also the one Telus lists on the page outlining the changes to the bandwidth @ »telus.com/content/home-phone/notices.jsp

Wow someone is arguing with me.

I'll let you do a search for "material change" in service.

Halving B/W *is* a material change in service.

Increasing cost *is* a "material change" in service.

You may want to look up what a "material change" in service is. When we pointed this out to the CRTC, Bell lost.

But hey, feel free to argue that Telus is the almighty authority.

Seems to me this scares you as it's about 700+$ per complaint per individual.

I wonder why this would scare you?

lol let them whine, Mike. Either way they are going to complain about it, claim they have "rights", and pretend they know the legal system.

I wonder why you took your Telsavvy review away from under your name then on left hand side of this column?
I also wonder if Telsavvy will be giving you this rate when you switch in February?

I didn't take it away. Sometimes it shows... Sometimes it doesn't. Look at the review date... Its probably 2-3 years old.

And no, teksavvy wont give me this price. What they give me is better - unlimited internet, and peace of mind. Don't get me wrong - I'm not switching right now. Telus for all purposes, is unlimited. As soon as they're not... I'll be canceling.

What most people aren't realizing... Is once ubb comes out from Telus.... You'll be paging triple what you pay now, to get the sake service. Telus charges what... $2 per GB? So that's an extra $100 just to get the missing 50gb
(I'm on my phone - so prices aren't accurate. I remember it being $2?.. But it might be less, or more)

All this talk when the only folks who REALLY need to worry about UBB are those heavy users of the internet.
I suppose that means those of you that are making the complaining on this thread.
The majority of us don't need to worry at all.

You kill me. You expect people to be thrilled to pay more and get 50% less of a product? Dude, what are you smoking, really help me grasp where you are coming from?

I'm guessing you hate unions too, like Consumers Union.
