Re: From Telus: Did it solve your problem?

A carrier flanker is a brand name that is owned by the cell phone carrier. For example, Telus owns flankers Public Mobile and Koodo, Bell owns flankers Lucky Mobile and Virgin Mobile, and Rogers has Chatr and Fido, among others. Another term that gets thrown around is a MVNO. which is a mobile virtual network operator. A MVNO uses a carriers towers, but is a separate company from the carrier. A MVNO currently cannot thrive in Canada like the rest of the world, because they cannot get a fair deal from the carriers when it comes to using their networks.

Re: From Telus: Did it solve your problem?

To be completely honest, PM mobile has one of the best celluar prices in Canada but I agree that it is still too high. Prior to joining PM, I was a long term Telus customer paying $60 for their 10GB plan. What pushed me to find a new carrier is when they decided to raise my plan to $70. This when I found out about PM. The Telus loyalty department for celluar service is a joke. The offers they gave me to stay was not worth considering, However, if any of you are on their home services, you can talk to their loyalty department to get great discounts.  I have been basically getting 50% off the services for more than 5+ years just by calling them to extend the discounts. But last year they made me sign a 2 year contract to get the best deal. Overall it;s still better than paying full price..
