Telus cutting their usage by half in Jan

Important information | Home Phone | TELUS

[BC] TELUS High Speed Turbo 25 Usage being reduced 50% - Telus | DSLReports Forums (Page 2)

Looks like Telus is getting a lot of angry customer or will be getting some angry calls.

Until Telus, actually, starts enforcing caps, I don't think I'll give a fuck.

How the hell do people go over the 125 GB Cap?!
My main hard drive doesn't even have that much space (SSD.. but still), what is there to download aside from movies / games? I feel like I'm a bit out of the loop.. are people changing over from torrents to other forms of downloads now too?

I use about 200 gigs a month easily. That's by myself,not counting my brother or anyone else in the household. I download music, movies, games, stream netflix, sirius satelite radio, ufc, wwe, sporting events all the time

Netflix, downloading HD TV shows (they are about 1.5 gigs each multiply by 4 assuming airing weekly and it runs an hour, that's 6 gigs for every show you watch), movies, youtube.

On a side note, has anyone else been getting random disconnects to their internet service w/ Telus? I've called in to see whats up and their only solution was giving me dsl filters, which haven't really solved the problem.

Wont be surprised if Telus will start tracking usage since Shaw has been doing it for awhile now. They are accurate to the dot.

i recently had my service throttled or it appears to be. was getting 25mbps for the longest time and had it dropped to 5mbps for about a week until my bill cycle turned and now back up to 25mbps. i was downloading a lot this month. it could just be a coincidence that their network was just shit for a week though.

The average Canadian spends almost 30 hours a week watching content - whether from TV or the internet. When you make this content HD, it's easy to go over 125GB.

Personally, I don't know how people find the time to essentially waste away. As Ben Franklin said, "Time is money."

well i for one download 720p at the minimum for movies, often 1080p for movies that emphasis special effects.
the days of 700mb files are long gone for me.. i mean, you buy a nice tv, get a receiver and speakers, and then watch low resolution video? its the year 2012..
movies are either 4gb or up to 10gb each depending.
