why does telus suck so much ass?

First off... Sandra and Alison are going to be uber pissed off at this post.









yup, i dont really care either.


Anyways, why does telus suck so much ass? well, let's see.. let's compare:

Pay nothing for your first 30 days of Shaw High-Speed Internet and then pay only $29.95/month for the next six months.




5 Mb download speed
512 Kb upload speed
60 GB/month data transfer

Right there... for the price of their extreme, you can get the shaw for 20 bones cheaper and lose 1mb down (which you'll never notice on shaw or on telus)
60gb for usage.. wow, that sucks for extreme for telus.

i didnt go into business cause i just cant find the fucking speeds there.

So why the free computers, free tampons for a year or whatever else they're giving out?

cause deep down.. they're hurting for customers, more so old grannies that dont know a toonie from a pile of shit.


Lets dig a little deeper:
Hmmm, does either company charge for service calls?
Shaw - no
Telus - yes

Is antivirus free with either company?
shaw - yes
telus - i know there's a charge there somewhere.. positive!

does either company use remote tools?
shaw - yes
telus - no



im bored with this post.. there ya have it folks.. Buyer beware.


TRANCE ROOLS!

Telus sucks but so does shaw for AVERAGE home use.

If i was going to pay for the massive high speed high bandwidth use shaw offers i would have to be running a buiness...

As it is i use between 60-100 gbs of traffic a month ON TELUS becuz all i do is use my computer, i know, its sad, i have no life.

But telus doesnt actually enforce their limits, not to mention that the shaw speeds are awful when being used in areas of high shaw concentrations.. UNLESS you pay for the big shaw stuff...

The way i see it is they both blow ass. One just looks better then the other.

HARD TRANCE RULES!! (I dint want anyone to take this too seriously)

Telus does suck. When I used to use them I called cust. service on 2 sep. occassions and both times I was treated like shyte. I found DSL was down on more occasions than shaw for me, infact I can't even remember shaw ever goin down for me. CDMA also sucks. You would think a company so big would have their shit together.

I still get mad overcharged by Telus once in a while. That's problem #1.

Problem #2 is that I moved out of my old place about 4 months ago and they STILL haven't sent a SINGLE NEW BILL to my new place. What the fuck is taking them so long - I've updated my address a month before I moved out and triple checked with them that they have my new address to do the billing. I already accepted the fact that I will be faced with a $400+ bill when it finally does come to my new place...

Telus sucks because they share bandwidth with Bell.
Enough said.

Gah, I don't like how so many companies resort to marketing using psuedohip words that might be cool with the mountain dew crowd

"nitro"

"extreme"

"ultimate"

bell does it too. it's soo cheesy .

Telus buy Bell?

Ha ha, somehow I doubt that. As soon as you leave BC and Alberta, Telus is hardly much of a player in Wireless or Phone Service.
