[Telus] Telus 15gb $70/m for those on their $60/10 GB plan (YMMV)

Just talked to retentions
Told them I wasn't too happy with getting a $10 increase

They offered me 5gb & unlimited international texting

If you need help tell them Fido offered you $500 credit towards a new phone & you understand it's koodo as your discount brand but you aren't happy about the increase

It's not a hot deal but just trying to help out from a shitty situation
Edit: So, many thumbs down
People have got free visual voicemail, 200 US minutes, free international texting, etc.

The thing is I am not going to spend more, as they want. I am going to spend less, I will find a deal. But they won't get more of my money.

Yeah I called them on Saturday and they also gave me 15 GB for $70. How should I get free international calling (I'm assuming it's US only?)? Should I call them again and say my friend is getting that from Telus?

Data is cheap. Telus had a bad quarter in terms of ARPU. This is their desperate attempt to get customers to spend more.
Koodo $40/6GB
Public Mobile 2016 fall promo, $23/1GB, $38/5GB
Fido $7.50/3GB+tablet
Rogers $25 500U home internet

International means International not US only

I had a US package on my account from before & they just offered that... addons they can usually do for free

They offered me the same as well. I use close to 10GB pretty often, but I’d rather choose when to pay more, or get more... not being forced to pay more for anything.

Right now it’s looking like Koodo has offered the plan to some customers for $60/month, so I’m going to be checking with them tomorrow, if not, I have a strong feeling I’ll
Be moving myself and the 3 other lines I have with them over to Freedom

Is there anyone that is offering minimum 10 GB for maximum $60?

Was very very dissapointed to recieved an increase paper.

Can anyone confirm they have talked to retentions to stop this or get something else comparable?

I wouldn't mind international calling.
I can call my overseas family everyday without disconnections like on WhatsApp or wechat

Unlimited calling to any country? I find that hard to believe.

I'm hoping I can get the extra 5GB, but would also like the Canada-US plan, so I can use my phone in the US. That would justify the $10 increase for me.
