bills by exceeding the limits of the data plans they have purchased. Data
Sharing allows TELUS customers to share their monthly data plan allocations
between subscribers and devices.
TELUS is putting customers first and embracing new ideas to make the TELUS
experience better. In addition to its new rate plans, TELUS recently
eliminated activation fees for both new and renewing customers and
dramatically simplified its entire fee schedule. This builds on a series of
improvements TELUS has made including eliminating carrier 911 and system
access fees on all its Clear and Simple rate plans, reducing bill shock with
Flex Data Plans, Data Notifications and Worry-free Travel, adding Caller ID
and Voicemail as standard on all TELUS rate plans, simplifying device pricing
with Anytime Upgrades and revolutionizing mobility contracts by introducing a
Device Balance instead of the dreaded contract termination fee.
