Telus raises data caps for all broadband plans

updated 03:25 pm EDT, Fri June 17, 2011

Plans now start at 30GB, raise to 500GB

Canadian Internet provider Telus has modified its broadband plans, raising the monthly data caps for the various levels of service. The High Speed Lite plan now allows customers to use 30GB, rather than limiting the entry-level option to just 13GB. The upgraded High Speed, Optik High Speed/High Speed Turbo, and Optik High Speed Turbo/High Speed Turbo 25 caps have been doubled to reach 150GB, 250GB and 500GB, respectively.

Aside from the new caps, many Turbo 25 customers are experiencing upload speed boost from 2Mbps to 3Mbps, according to DSLReports. Other changes include a drop in overage charges for the High Speed Lite plan, which now penalizes at a rate of $2/GB instead of $5/GB.

The strategy shift arrives less than a month after competing cable provider Shaw introduced a new range of Internet plans with significantly higher caps at each price level.
