I still went ahead and asked him to install internet 50 with wifi booster. Now I have 2.4G and 5G options. On 5G, I'm consistently getting 50 Mb/s. Maybe down the road, I will just revert back to internet 25 as 50 Mb/s is really an overkill for me.
May I ask what exactly is the WiFi booster? Is it the range extenders you can get a NCIX/Best Buy etc? Thanks

Telus 25. Looks like I got shafted...

But the only reason I'm even on Telus 25 is because Telus is trying to convince me why I should upgrade to "25" by giving me a free upgrade for 6 months,
while letting me continue paying what I was paying for "15".

So what do you guys even do that require such fast internet speeds?
I was streaming videos fine with Telus 15...

You definitely don't need 50, or even 25 for normal internet browsing or even watching youtubes, if you can consistently get 15-16 on your internet 15.

yeah, higher bandwidth is why i have shaw 50 currently. but i just recently will be making the switch over to telus 25 and optik tv etc. hope it works out well. the deal i got is for tv, homephone and internet. for the first 6 months its $95/mo, after 6 months its $115 and then after a year its about $190ish. still not bad and cheaper than im paying with thaw. i just hope the service is just as good.

I had Telus 15 and was always cutting it close with the data cap.
Instead of having to pay overage fee, I opted to get Telus 25 for just a few bucks more. Higher cap and higher speeds.

If internet 15 is suitable for your needs, why not just add the unlimited for 15 dollars. I'm thinking of moving down from internet 50 to internet 25 and adding unlimited, since I have phone and Optik tv.

torrent speeds really depends on where ur getting ur torrents from. personally, with private torrents, im able to get arnd 12-15MBytes/s on my BB100 plan which is 100MBits/s maxing out my commention

remember ISPs always advertises their speeds in mega bits where as torrent traffic is measures in mega bytes

Replaced my USB wifi adapter as well which I guess was also limiting the speed. I consistently get about 55/15 now on Telus internet 50.

Don't buy the Actiontec range extender offered by Telus for $100, you can just go to NCIX and pick up a better one for around $40 + mail-in rebate ($30). I bought the ASUS rp-n53 yesterday and I'm waiting for the rebate to be processed, but in total, it would cost about $15. The mail-in rebate is for purchases in September, so its going to expire really soon, if a range extender is what you are looking for. I tried the Actiontec one that somebody linked earlier and I had barely 1 bar of wifi in my basement, with the ASUS, now its consistently 2 to 3 out of 4.

You guys with 25 down plan with any courier, how do you find streaming Netflix or even youtube. How much buffering you get? I have Shaw 60 just wondering if i even need that much.

On Telus 25, no issue. I would definitely suggest going with wired connection if you can. I use hardline for my laptop. Wireless, I get 6 to 10 down. Wired, I consistently get 25-26 down.

On wireless, make sure you're using wireless N and not G. Unless you're stand very close to the access point while using G, you won't get any speeds compatible to wireless N.
