Effective today, Telus — Canada’s third-largest wireless carrier — has increased the majority of its wireless voice plans and also added additional data options.
The Canadian telecom has scrapped its 300 local minutes plan and increased the price by $5 per month on all of its voice plans. While the plan depends on your device, unlimited local calling now starts at $70 per month and unlimited nationwide calling starts at $75 per month for premium-tier customers and $80/85 per month for ‘Premium Plus’ plans.
As for the data options, Telus added an extra 1GB of data on the 4GB, $45 per month plan and left the base price for the plan untouched. Meanwhile, Telus is now offering 8GB for $60.
A Telus spokesperson told MobileSyrup that the latest promotion for the carrier’s data-heavy 10GB plan gives a 2GB bonus for $70 per month, which brings the total monthly data allotment to 12GB. Subscribers will still need to purchase a voice plan with this promo.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on when this particular promotion will expire.
According to Telus’ latest earnings, the carrier topped 8.9 million wireless subscribers and earned $3.47 billion in revenues.
