Telus Finalizes Student Plans, Adds $55 Option

As the summer comes to a close and the back-to-school seasons arrives, the Canadian wireless carriers have started to release their Student Plans. This week, Telus has finalized their student plans with two offers, both iPhone compatible.

Telus Student Plans

This summer, students have, among the other Telus plans, two specific student plans available to them. Both plans include data, so the plans work great on iPhone and both plans are available only on a 3-year agreement. Details are as follows:

$40.00 Student Plan

  • Minutes: 200 daytime minutes
  • Data: 100MB
  • Evenings & Weekends: Unlimited at 6PM
  • Unlimited Features Included: Unlimited text, picture, video messages & Unlimited Nationwide talk and text to 10 numbers
  • Calling Features Included: Visual Voicemail, Call Waiting, Conference Calling

The $40 plan is not bad, except that 100MB of data would not be good for an iPhone. Then again, if you can keep under 100MB, which is not a lot, then all the power to you.

$55.00 Student Plan

  • Minutes: 200 daytime minutes
  • Data: 1GB
  • Evenings & Weekends: Unlimited at 6PM
  • Unlimited Features Included: Unlimited text, picture, video messages & Unlimited Nationwide talk and text to 10 numbers
  • Calling Features Included: Visual Voicemail, Call Waiting, Conference Calling

The $50 plan adds $15 over the previous student offer and increases the data by 900MB. This plan is comparable with the standard $50 voice and data plan from Telus that includes 500MB of data and does not include both unlimited text/picture/video and My10 Nationwide.

Between the two student offers, the $55 option seems to offer more value, especially for an iPhone. The student plans are available now and will require student identification from a Canadian post-secondary institution. The plans are also available to existing Telus customers if they meet the student requirement and renew their account on a 3-year agreement.
