It appears Telus prepaid users are set to experience some changes to their data plans. Customers have been receiving text messages from Telus notifying them of the following changes forthcoming to the Data plus messaging 20 plan, as noted by MobileSyrup:
– Data will reduce from 100MB from 250MB. The price will remain at $20 for 30 days.
– Exceeding your data limit will reduce from $3/MB to $1/MB.
– Changes coming July 18th
So in summary, prices will stay the same but data amounts will drop by 60%. Overage prices on data will decrease though. The plan includes unlimited outgoing and incoming text messages and $0.20/minute anytime local rates. Telus prepaid net subscribers decreased by 41,000 as noted in their 2012 Q1 earnings.
