• Telus Tweaks Its BYOD Plans



    A few weeks ago when Canada's Big Three suddenly started offering 10GB "unlimited" BYOD plans, Telus set itself apart by throttling additional data at a higher bit-rate than Bell and Rogers—512kbps versus 256. While I personally am of the opinion that EDGE data speeds are flat-out unacceptable in 2019, it seems to have been enough of a differentiator for many to go with Telus.

    Good news for those people: as of today, Telus is making improvements to all of their BYOD plans.

    First leaked to Mobile Syrup this morning, the rates are now live, and are branded Peace of Mind Plans. Rates are as they were before:

    Peace of Mind: $75/month for 10GB
    Peace of Mind Plus: $95/month for 20GB
    Peace of Mind Ultra: $125/month for 50GB

    The new perk is a family discount, offering per-user savings as follows:

    $5 per line per month for 2 lines
    $10 per line per month for 3 lines
    $15 per line per month for 4 to 9 lines

    And this family discount also applies to three new Simple Share Plans with (you guessed it) shareable data:

    Simple Share 10: $75/month for 10GB
    Simple Share 20: $95/month for 20GB
    Simple Share 50: $125/month for 50GB

    The data isn't capped, and overages will cost the usual (and egregious) $100/GB, but you can at least pool your household data into a bigger monthly bucket and redistribute it however you see fit.

    More on these new plans at the links immediately below.
