Well I just did a test on Telus in my basement with the phone showing 1 bar and got 99 Mbps with a couple spikes to nearly 105 Mbps on an iPhone XS Max. I'm sure it'd be significantly quicker if I was in a better spot, I've gotten over 150 on Rogers just on an iPhone 8+ before.

Also I'm super glad I went with the extra $2/month for the XS Max over the standard XS. I don't give a damn about the notch and I FINALLY feel happy with the screen size.

I asked if I can cancel my current order and they said yes but I’m running the risk of doing a second credit check. Just something I didnt want to do (I’m sure I’ll pass with flying colours, but do I really want to do it?)

Just here thinking I can cancel the order and walk in the store to get my phone. Oh well.
Go to one listed as Telus and not something like IQ Mobile or Master Com. I would call first to confirm they have someone who can help you with setting up an EPP. If they try to say you need to talk to your rep just say you prefer to do it in person and not over email or the web portal.

If it hasn't been mentioned yet the Winnipeg locations for Telus where it can be done in-store are Garden City and Grant Park.

Anyone know of a Telus corporate store in Calgary? If I want to avoid the online route.

I checked the smartcell page and it looks like zero locations out west.... My epp portal is through them.

I think Tom Harris or Clearwest Solutions should be able to set up EPP accounts.

So the big difference for me is that Telus is doing a discount on the plan.. so the plan price can go up at any time since your EPP deal is just a % discount. Bell's EPP is a fixed price... but the question I have, is will Bell increase the price? Or will it be locked in for as long as I have the plan and make no changes?
