Telus customers on Peace of Mind plans will now be able to purchase a data top-up of 3GB for $15.
The new top-up feature, called Fast Pass, will help customers if they have reached their monthly high-speed data threshold.
A spokesperson for Telus told MobileSyrup that customers will start getting notifications when they’ve reached their data limit and will then be offered to purchase a Fast Pass.
The spokesperson indicated that this is a one time charge and that the added data must be used up before your next billing cycle.
For clarification, Peace of Mind customers already have unlimited data, however, after they’ve reached their allotted amount for the month their data speed gets throttled. Fast Pass allows customers to continue with have high-speed data for another 3GB of usage.
Telus announced its Peace of Mind data plans in July.
Rogers also has a type of data overage protection plan for its customers.
