    Fight Back!

    Telus is not above the Law, do not allow them to intimidate those of you who have a Unlimited Plan.

    Unlimited is Unlimited unless the terms clearly state what constitutes abuse.

    In law Telus has no grounds in deactivating your unlimited service. Case in point Verizon tried this and failed.

    Unlimited should mean unlimited... period. Or else they shouldn't be allowed to advertise it as such. That would be considered FALSE advertising wouldn't it?

    I agree that you should fight this. Be nice though, because the terms of your service are general enough that Telus does have a leg to stand on here.

    They should put a definition on the word "abuse" because I don't think you can sound any more obtuse by saying your network usage is unlimited but if you abuse it will suddenly become limited for you.

    Where is the line???

    Or just cap it and call it the 5gb plan or whatever the cap is. I hate the word unlimited when it clearly is not.

    Typical Tony trying to get others to fight for what he won't fight for himself.

    THey don't say it's unlimited bandwidth. THey could just say it's unlimited meaning you can use it anytime you want.

    And US court cases mean nothing in canada.

    Well that's not how I interpret the term. But regardless, call if unlimited if you want...but put a clear cap in place. My high speed connection is essentially unlimited but I still have a 60gb soft cap in place. How hard would it be to apply the same principals to a wireless data line? Obviously the cap would be substantially lower then 60 gigs, but at least put clear guidelines in place.

    Seriously Read the letter the OP posted as well as Telus's advertising for the unlimited data plans.

    Since Canadian Law and American Law have its roots from the British Common Laws system, it is not uncommon to reference American Laws and British Laws for Canadian Law.

    From Wiki: "When there is little or no existing Canadian decision on a particular legal issue and it becomes necessary to look to a non-Canadian legal authority for reference, decisions of English courts and American courts are often utilized".

    This thread title is misleding. It makes it sound as if Telus capped your service for using it normally. However, as with EVERY PROVIDER IN THE WORLD, unlimited is unlimited if used properly and within the TOS. Therefore, your service IS unlimited but clearly you've been using it for prohibited purposes (IE: downloading torrents, VOIP, etc) and therefore I have no sympathy nor do I think it's unfair.

    I just love how a few people think the word unlimited means they can break the terms of usage.

    PS: If you did NOT use it for downloading movies/torrents or prohibited applications, then I apologize and Telus should shut up. Otherwise, they are completely in the right. Best regards.


    FIDO $40/4GB BYOD
    PUBLIC $38/4GB BYOD
    WIND $15 AITF unlimited data (10GB full speed)

    iFido and Shawntdot are Fido/Rogers employees, take what they say with a grain of salt as they are bias towards the definition of their "unlimited" plans.

    Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

    Unlimited

    Pronunciation: \-ˈli-mə-təd\
    Function: adjective
    Date: 15th century
    1 : lacking any controls : unrestricted <unlimited access>
    2 : boundless, infinite <unlimited possibilities>
    3 : not bounded by exceptions : undefined <the unlimited and unconditional surrender of the enemy — Sir Winston Churchill>
    — un·lim·it·ed·ly adverb

    The TELUS Wireless High Speed network allows for fast and reliable Internet connections. This opens the door for a variety of services such as streaming video and other multimedia applications. Mobile professionals will be able to get broadband-like connections to corporate Intranets, e-mail servers, the Internet, and other online services.
    What I was originally sold, and convinced to sign a 3 year contract for was *unlimited* and *unrestricted*. The rep swore up and down that this was the case, and wouldn't change if I signed a 3 year contract. Had he said it was "only for web browsing and email", and there would be an abitrary cap placed on the capacity I would have went with a wired connection.

    And for the record my usage for July was 4GB.

    And Tony2468 is a troll who wants everyone to sue everyone else so he can just sit back and collect on anything the court rewards but he does not want to get involved in any work himself. If you notice in all the forums he posts in there is a common theme to his posts and thats to encourage people to take action while he does nothing but sit and comment on it.


    Anyways, no matter what the store rep told you the Telus Terms of Service clearly state that they can bring up the fair use card if they think you are abusing the system. It does not matter if you claim you didn't abuse it or what other people think on the subject, Telus clearly thinks you have abused it so now you need to deal with them on the issue. If it's gotten to the point of a letter you may be at the point of no return. End of 30days they may just turn off your data.

    Except you can use your 4MB plan anytime you want too, but they don't list that as unlimited. And they advertise the plans as $X for Y MB/GB, but where the MB/GB would be in this case, they put "Unlimited". So clearly you didn't think through this rebuttal, other than the brief US vs. Canada mention.
