[Telus] Telus discounted Internet for the disabled (Internet for Good) now offers 50 Mbps service

Telus has expanded its Internet for Good service to offer 50 Mbps for $19.95/month, in addition to the pre-existing offer of 25 Mbps for $9.95/month. Both plans have no data caps, connection charges, or minimum terms.

Eligibility is restricted to people who live in Telus-served areas and receive Alberta AISH, BC PWD, or federal CPPD benefits.

Sadly Telus has stopped install internet where I am as they can't do above 6 mbps down. I know people who qualify for the $10/month family in need plans but can't get anything as no one will install.

this is actually news to me. My dad uses telus 25 Mbps and he recevies CPPD. (injure at work). but he didn't get any discount for it. I'll inform him about this and see if they can apply for it. He currently pays around 50 dallor a month.

Are these people eligible for Connecting Families? Shaw participates in that and should be able to connect up people who live in areas without Telus VDSL.

The best alternative option for people who don't qualify for Connecting Families and can't get Telus VDSL is Lightspeed's 15 Mbps plan for $35.90.

$50 for 25 Mbps is low for market rate Internet in western Canada. We get ripped off even more than you do.

Yeah but never buy at market rate - always call in/use third parties for offers. I've had luck posting in local fb community groups asking for internet salespeople and they alway have the best deals (im not sure if its out west, but tbooth has hooked me up!)

I renegotiated my mom’s Telus 75 Home Internet (unlimited data) and home phone with call display for only $45 per month on a two year contract.

I have to agree with you. 50 Mbps if they have multiple people in their household is insufficient. Just because they are CCPD recipients, it doesn't mean they should be offered these low speeds only. ISPs should offer the 150Mbps service at $10 honestly.

50 Is plenty for everyone unless more than one person is streaming 4K content. I have 4 people using the internet at the same time sometimes with 2 people using Netflix (1080P) and have no issues with only 16Mbps. I do agree with you that we pay way to much for internet (and cell) services.

If they no longer install in smaller towns that don't have fast Telus you're out of luck
