[Telus] Telus Internet - SAVE $5 per MONTH + free modem/router

Hey guys. In lieu of the post in regards to the Rogers Internet thread.. link below...
http://www.redflagdeals.com/forums/show ... ght=rogers

Basically in that deal, you get $5 off per month and a free wireless N router for free until sep 15.

Well, i'm with Telus, and I prefer them over Rogers for my own personal reasons.
So I thought i'd give them a call and see if they will match the deal above...

So I called in and with no problems at all I got $5 off my internet service. which is pretty solid =). HOWEVER, they don't have wireless N modems because they have those crappy modem/router in one things (i don't suggest using them, just ask for the speed touch modem* and buy a linksys wireless router). But the operator gave me the option of getting it anyways. So i just got him to send it to me.. i could always use it as a hub or just sell it?

They don't have any gas cards so i couldn't get that. but i did manage to squeeze out a free month on top of my $5 savings.

hope this helps =)
edit- i used to pay $40.95 for 6.0 Mbps and now i pay $35.95 =)

*Speed Touch Modem - Apparently is the most efficient simply modem you can get from telus according to the tech guy that gave it to me. It is supposed to be just a pure modem and you don't lose speed or quality like their other modems they have. The speed touch is not given unless you ask for it. So ask for it. it's fast, simple, and works very well with my linksys =)

Is this deal available in Toronto and Ottawa?
:?:
hey. it's not really a deal. it's more of a retention deal. so i'm sure it is available everywhere telus has their services. just tell them that rogers is offering it and they should accommodate you.
i'm almost positive it will work if you try it out.

Why " :( " - I thought the Shaw student deal was cheaper?

WTF. you're right. wtf have i been paying soo much for all this time.
btw. the 30.95 is for one year on a contract.

but yes, it is $35.95 regular.. i'm going to call back and ask them why i was paying so much and hopefully get the 30.95$ price instead of the $35.

I didn't realize Telus offered Home Internet Service. How does it compare to Rogers and Bell? Same thing?

For the most part, TELUS offers residential services in AB, BC and parts of Quebec. They are the local phone company there, similar to Bell in Ontario / Quebec.

I've had Bell while in the east coast and I currently have Telus now in the west coast. To be honest, I didn't have much problems with Bell, it was always fast. This view may not be the same as some who used to or currently have Bell. I've been using Telus High Speed Enhanced for a while in conjunction with Telus TV. No problems with the Telus internet so far, it has always been fast, and I do use the combined modem/router that Telus provides. The Telus TV service... that's another story.

Be careful with Telus free equipment. I just had a go round with Telus over the loss of one of my Telus telephone services- caller ID-. Turns out their router or modem was interfering with my Telephone service. Took me three weeks to get them to find the problem was not my equipment but theirs. They came out and tested twice before accidentally finding what was causing the problem. They switched their modem and no problem since. They have two different modems, the cheaper one caused the problem.

I just upgraded my service with Telus, doubling the speed for $5 a month less. The speed I was getting wasn't even being offered anymore.

When I bitched about overpaying for months, they threw me a free month.

The CSR also suggested keeping a really careful eye on the rates when my year comes up. Telus won't warn you that your speed or rate is obsolete. Carpe diem, I guess.
