Why should I stay with Telus for EPP on 5G?
Found out through EPP portals that Telus and Rogers offer $56 for 10GB on BYOD.
Except Telus charges a $50 migration fee (not sure if there’s also an activation fee) and I’m hearing mixed reports on whether it can be waived or not. The Telus EPP call centre is closed for the day as they only operate until 5PM Eastern time.
I called the Rogers sales line and they said they can waive the $40 activation fee as long as it is a BYOD plan. That makes Rogers a much better deal then.
Only thing I’m concerned with Rogers is potentially slower speeds and weaker signal, respectively... I’m in Edmonton and did hear two reports from people that Rogers is actually better. I live in suburban Edmonton (almost the far south end) and noticed Rogers and Freedom installed new towers to the neighbourhoods 10 minutes south of me, while Telus haven’t. So I’m not sure if Telus actually has a better network at all. I do get ridiculously fast speeds from my time on Koodo and Telus. Usually 200-300mbps download and even got 500mbps on LTE a few times. From my few times roaming on ROGERS LTE with an AT&T SIM, I noticed strong 4 full bars of signal in a lot of places...
While I see if Telus can waive the $50 migration fee at all, is there a reason why I shouldn’t switch to Rogers?
