The Telus Internet for Good plan has expanded to eligible seniors in Quebec, offering high speed internet from $10 per month.
Two plans with unlimited data are available for seniors that are receiving the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS):
- Internet 25 with speeds of up to 25 Mbit/s ($9.95/month)
- Internet 50 with speeds of up to 50 Mbit/s ($19.95/month)
“Through the Internet for Good program, our senior citizens are able to stay in virtual contact with their support network and the people they care about, while having affordable virtual access to resources that protect their mental and physical health,” said Marie-Christine D’Amours, Vice-President of Home Solutions and Customer Experience at TELUS in Quebec, in a statement.
Seniors in the greater Quebec City region, Eastern Quebec and the Mauricie region are eligible to sign up for the discounted internet program. Eligible seniors need to show Telus their T4A form from the Old Age Security program to show they are receiving the GIS. Once approved, a promo code will allow them to sign up for the discounted internet program.
The Telus Internet for Good program launched in 2018 in Quebec and is available to 45,000 low income families and those with disabilities. Telus says the expansion of the program makes it available to 30,000 low-income seniors in the greater Quebec City region, Eastern Quebec and the Mauricie region.
Telus Internet for Good for seniors was launched last month in B.C. and Alberta, and has now expanded to Quebec.
