Telus was founded in 1990 and is currently run by Darren Entwhistle.
What’s great about having a good mobile internet plan is that you never need to search and pay for wi-fi anymore. Plus you can use it anywhere from a small hut on a mountain to a coffee shop in the city.
Here are the two plans that Telus offers:
Mobile High Speed:
Telus have also stuck to the multi-tier plan. For their Mobile High Speed Plans they offer Mobile High Speed 30, Mobile High Speed 40, Mobile High Speed 50 and lastly, Mobile High Speed 65. Each of them has their own price and data allowance. Simply choose whichever one is right for you.
Telus Mobile High Speed 30 plan costs $30 a month and includes 500MB of data. Mobile High Speed 40 costs $40 and gets you 1GB. Mobile High Speed 50 costs $50 and gets you 2GB and lastly Mobile High Speed 65 costs $65 and gets you 5GB.
Mobile High Speed Flex:
This plan is for people with a more chaotic consumption of data. One month you might download tons of content and the next you just send a few emails. With this plan you start each month in the lowest bracket of $35 (up to 500MB). Then, if you exceed this amount within the month, it goes up to the $45 bracket (for up to 1GB). After that it is the 1GB to 2GB bracket and this costs $55. For 2GB to 5GB expect to pay $70.
If you exceed these caps you can always pay an additional 5c per MB to keep surfing uninterrupted. If you happen to be roaming in the US when this happens, the rate jumps to $3 per MB. If you’re in any other country the fee rockets up to $25 per MB. A one-time activation fee of $35 is incurred when you activate these plans from your phone or in store, but if you do so online, there is no fee at all.

Telus’ network covers most of Canada with a 3G signal. However, most of the major cities are now covered by 4G too.
4G is the short name for any internet speed above 3mbps. Anything under that figure is considered to be 3G. A few different delivery and transmission protocols exist under the 4G banner but the speeds are the main defining factor.
