Surely Telus should show by example that the Current Status Quo is not Doable and requires a Revolutionary Injection of new Ideas, different principles, different Mindset, Newer Ideas.


@makkahn28 here's the problem with your suppositions: Telus has no incentive to inject any revolutionary new ideas, different principles, different mindset, newer ideas.  To them, the current status quo is not only doable, it's awesome.  Why would they want to cannibalize their high-margin mobile business with something providing more for less?  Why would they want to ignite a price war with the other providers in their oligopoly in favour of their customers over their profits?  

 

If you don't believe me, look how hard Canadian big telecom has fought the adoption of proper nation-wide MVNOs.  The last thing they want is any sort of meaningful change which could challenge their profits and shareholder happiness.

Re: NEW $70 for 15GB Plan

Let's be honest, PM mostly shines when it comes to their lower-end plans. This feels like an extension to allow long-term users to upgrade rather than being a competitive plan compared to other companies. This is outside of the target audience, unlike Bell or their main company Telus. There is no competing with yourself.

Re: NEW $70 for 15GB Plan

Hum, aren't pm's 15$ and 35$ plan objectively better?

 

You get exactly the same service, but you can also accumulate rewards and have an easy 2$ off each months right off the bat. The 25$ one is not offered either, which is subjectively the best.

 

But then again the last one is according to my own needs. I mean I've done nearly nothing to reduce the cost and the plan now costs me 20$ per month which is not something I've found anywhere else.

 

Perhaps our chat is slightly unrelated to the  original subject though πŸ™‚ .

Yeah, especially considering that the $15 and $35 plans actually start at $13 and $33 with just autopay... and by doing nothing else after 5 years they reach $8 and $28. A few referrals and the $15 plan is easily made free (My wife and I -- CHECK! - working on my dads now) It will take a  Lot to beat that value!! LOL

Re: NEW $70 for 15GB Plan

Actually thank-you. I was just about to do the same thing because I'm currently out of data and obviously need more like yesterday because I am completely without wifi. So far this experience has not been a good one. I only got the 50 dollar plan a week ago. My data warning shouldn't be on already. 😬

We have to keep that sneaky bf away from your data. Did you activate in store or online? If it was online did you enter the promocode 2GBBONUS to get the 2gb of bonus plan data? If not then a moderator can add it. In store activations don't qualify for it but you might qualify for the mysterious 6gb of bonus data I have been hearing about.

  • Mysterious 6 GB of data?!?! For real??? You a most kind, gentle and the most generous goddess βœ¨πŸ‘‘βœ¨ I have met here by far and sound like the best kind of fabulous soul sista I'd def love to keep in my corner...I have just read your private email btw ...will reply and thank-you for reaching out... I wouldn't even know how to do that on my own so I truly appreciate it because I do have paralyzing anxiety and guess what...you calmed me down immediately and this feeling just came over me that everything was absolutely going to be alright and I just had to breath. πŸ‘πŸ˜‰πŸ™ Did you know that they can just renew the 50 dollar plan so I could keep the the bonus promo data? Well that's what they did for me...lol atleast I frikkin hope that's what he meant lol...you have been absolutely a blessing today and I truly hope you receive the blessing tenfold miss darlicious!! Love the name by the way πŸ™Œβœ¨πŸ’›πŸŒ»πŸ’›πŸ™Œβœ¨ I just wanted to make sure I replied here first y'know....πŸ’°πŸ’πŸͺ™πŸ’²πŸ’΄πŸ’΅ Lol sounds like you and I come cut from the same cloth.  I didn't want to have to sign another contract and had very little data to do the checking around but I believe this is the best way for me right now. I've turned off all my notifications looked at the  bunch of different ways to save on data like you suggested and boom....I'm feeling better and pretty good about it. And yes the bf (yesssss....that is what we shall call him for the time being grrrrr 😑😬🧐🀨🀐🀬 is he ever bout to hear about it πŸ₯±πŸ˜±. Lol. I feel like I'm about to go get a new place now lol. He still doesn't know that I know what he did. Apparently it's very easy to tether into and attach yourself to someone else's data. Lads and ladies...don't be a me lol. Learn about as much as you can before you end up in a pile of πŸ’© not having a reliable and dependable source of internet. The internet has honestly and literally saved my life so many times...they should really have more options out there for the most vulnerable members of our society. Thankyou my new friend and new favorite person hehe. You made a difference and impact in someone's life today ☺️
