What you need to know

  • Usage summaries may not be available to subscribers in some provinces
  • While data usage notifications are close to real-time, usage meters can be delayed by up to 6 hours. Share plans will reflect each person’s usage at various times and are subject to the same delays. All usage information is an approximate; please refer to your invoice for final charges
  • There may be longer delays in updating summaries for share plans. Share plans will reflect each person’s usage at various times and are subject to the same delays as single plans
  • All usage summaries are approximate. Refer to your invoice for the final, accurate usage
  • Like other wireless carriers in Canada and worldwide, TELUS Mobility bills airtime to clients from the moment network resources are used to either make or receive calls
  • Outgoing calls are billed from the time the caller initiates the call until the call ends
  • Incoming calls are also billed for the entire duration of the call, including the time it took to connect the call
  • You are not billed for any calls that are not connected

Overage charges

Overage charges may vary depending on which Mobility plan you are on. Visit Understanding data overage charges for more details.

How data usage is reported

When reviewing your data usage, you may see instances where multiple "chunks" of data appear to have been consumed at the same time.

The time indicated is when the data session began. But in a single session, you may have incurred multiple instances of data usage. For example:

  • You may have watched a video, then left for a few minutes before watching another video
  • You may have set up a personal hotspot, then the device that's tethered to yours used some data

When such instances happen within a single session, the data usage chart will show several instances of data usage, all with the same start time.

Also, sometimes when larger amounts are data are consumed, the reporting may be split into smaller segments. For example if a video consumed 7.2 MB of data, you may see it reported as 5 MB and 2.2 MB, with the same start time.
