But is it. You said he was caught . Anything can be done until you are caught. So really, its nor portable, otherwise he wouldnt of been disconnected
I feel that the disconnection is not automatic but left to a human to do so.
He has been using it the past two months smack in the middle of West Vancouver without problem. Out of 3x the past year, he was disconnected once.
He always reconnects in the countryside without problem.

Ive got until spring, so will keep my eye out. Happy with my hardware, a price cut would be what I want, or more data for the same price

Thing is, what else is there, thats the thing. We know in the rural area what there are for ISP;s. Xplornet (sucks) CCI Wirless (sucks) etc. Its not like you will leave Telus fore them, and they know it.

They know they have the fastest speeds as well, so really as a customer, we have no teeth, because we have the best there is (so far)

Agreed
But still worth a try if we never push/ask we stand no chance of ever getting improved deals ........

For sure, I call occasionally since I have 3 Telus products. Satellite is the one that always climbs. That and home phone are on a short life span in my house

We have Telus for the internet service
We don’t any tv package as we use Netflix and YouTube for tv. Our cell plans are with Koodo(Telus) and we do get a pretty good having used the ‘i’m Going cancel line’
Understand rural home internet is a different ball game so will keep searching for any improvements on my current deal .

Want to do just Youtube and Netflix, but its more than me that votes on this stuff. And my wife and duaghtr watch to much Network TV to get rid of it. Myself and the boys rarely watch anything from the satellite.

We moved from the UK around 6 yrs ago to Canada and never had a tv subscription package since living in Canada, much prefer on demand viewing as we only watch a few shows and prefer it as our chosen viewing option.
For entertainment now we watch our chickens laying eggs Face With Tears Of Joy

We had to have Xplornet, had it for 9ish years. All there was. It was like dialup with their speeds. Their throttling on purpose, their speed burst garbage, etc

Having this hub is like city internet in my opion. Sure download rates are lower for big files, but for surfing, Netlfix and day to day stuff, its fast. Even PS4 patches that download time was 4 days for some, now its 6 hours. Sure to city people thats slow, but for rural, thats fast
