Telus Wireless Stick/Digital TV

I feel I am being ripped of by my Telus wireless USB internet stick at $95 per month for only 5 GB data compared to Telus ADSL 100 GB data for half the cost. Telus won't bring ADSL here they said. And 5 GB is Telus largest wireless stick plan. And then after 5 GB you pay about $50 for each 1 GB after the first 5 GB on their largest plan. Telus in my opinion is ripping people off charging so much.

The only other internet available where I am at in this rural area is dialup or satellite, because there are hills surrounding my subdivision. I was told that if I go over my allotted amount on Satellite service that the internet slows right down ... so I didn't want slow service if I go over either. The neighbor can't receive Telus TV due to a hill blocking his signal. I don't want Telus TV now. Just look at the article below I saw in the newspaper that I pasted below.

I think Telus is overcharging so they can make donations and take the credit for the donations so they look good. But in reality they have to be overcharging and taking extra money from people to be able to make such a large donation of $100 for each person that signs up for Telus TV by March 2, 2011. I suppose that Telus must be making donations I don't know about with its wireless internet services too, since I feel I am paying at least double what I should be paying. I would only be paying half of $95 if I was on ADSL and I would be getting 100 GB data instead of 5 GB and I would have an extra USB port and I would have a landline phone I could fax with to boot.

Here is an article I saw in the local newspaper about Telus TV $100 donation for each new subscriber of Telus TV that signs up by March 2, 2011. Notice when this article was published April 14, 2010. That is alot of money that Telus is donating to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Telus Committed to communication growth in Vernon area

April 14, 2010 - Vernon Morning Star - page B18

Advanced wireline and wireless broadband services are being enhanced in Vernon thanks to Telus' $8.5 million investment in this community for 2010.

"This year, as part of our $650 million investment across British Columbia, we are focusing $8.5 million on bringing the benefits of one of the world's most advanced wireless networks, high speed internet and high definition Telus TV to our customers right here in Vernon, " said Michael Lloyd, Telus field support manager for Vernon.

Specifically, health care, environment and First Nations initiatives are benefitting from Telus' investment in B.C. Improved patient outcomes and more efficient care result when communications are made easier says Darren Enwistle, Telus president and chief executive officer.

Further, electronic document transfer decreases dependence on natural resources.

"We are also helping our clients reduce their impact on the environment by providing the latest telecommuting, conferencing and data management solutions enabling the movement of ideas and information instead of people, vehicles and paper." said Entwistle. "Advanced broadband services are also enabling new education and commerce opportunities for dozens of Aboriginal communities in British Columbia, " he said.

This year Telus will also continue to expand its wireless broadband network in Vernon, building on the November 2009 launch of the fastest and biggest wireless network in British Columbia and Canada.

"Since 2000, Telus our 33 team members and many retirees in Vernon have contributed $650, 000 to charitable and community organization in Vernon, " said Lloyd.

Telus is donating $100 for every new Telus TV client in Vernon who signs up before March 2, 2011 to the Building a Tower of Care Campaign in support of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Tower of care campaign co-chair Joanne Kineshanko appreciates Telus' continued support. "Our success is dependant on the generosity of philanthropic companies like Telus. I would like to extend a big thank you to the Telus team for their caring support." she said.

"Through our campaign over 120, 000 residents in the North Okanagan and Columbia-Shuswap will benefit from improvement to Vernon Jubilee Hospital."
