TELUS has announced this morning a new Canada-US option for smartphone customers, which allows the use of your plan while you’re down in the U.S.
This new Canada-US Your Choice plan says users can “enjoy your data, unlimited calling and texting to the U.S. and while in the U.S. Required for the duration of your term.”
This plan adds $10 more per month, on top of the unlimited nationwide calling option. It is available to new and existing customers, including those bringing their own devices to TELUS (although the website hasn’t reflected that yet).
TELUS explained in an email, “This new plan is a great option for customers who frequently travel to the US, Canadians who are studying in the US and frequently talk/text with friends and family in Canada.”
Essentially, if you have frequent business or personal communication in the U.S., this option will cost an extra $10 per month, so you can talk, text and use data from your existing plan.
On a side note—the TELUS website looks to have also been revamped, so if you were just getting used to the old design, it’s time to re-learn all over again.
