TELUS Responds to Shaw, ‘Internet 150’ Gets Bump to 150Mbps Upload
Shaw recently launched WideOpen Internet 150, offering download speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload of 15Mbps. The promo offered new customers the plan at $50 per month for the first year and $80 per month for the second year. This caused many TELUS Optik Internet customers to make the switch (including ourselves!).
Now, TELUS has responded with a promotion of their own, for their PureFibre plan. The plan offers up to 150Mbps download speeds, but their upload just got a massive bump to 150Mbps—from 30Mbps.
As for pricing, new customers can get Internet only at $47 per month for the first three months, then pay $85 per month afterwards, on a two-year contract (Internet 50 is $80 per month).
According to users on RFD, TELUS is also offering free unlimited bandwidth (unadvertised), while also matching Shaw’s price promotion on WideOpen Internet 150. Also, if you don’t opt for TELUS’ Internet 150 plan, the company is said to discount customer plans on 25Mbps (some paying less than $50 per month), so call in and talk to retentions.
Below is a list of cities where TELUS Fibre is currently available:
So if you’re a current TELUS customer thinking about switching to Shaw for Internet, definitely call in and talk to retentions to see if you can get a discount on your current Internet plan.
