As part of their campaign, the Liberal Party pledged to make cell phone bills more affordable and reduce them by 25%, saving a family of four almost $1,000 a year.
We reviewed our current in-market pricing to ensure our plans meet - or exceed - the $2929 annual target for a family of four, as outlined in the chart below. Also, according to a study by PWC, Canada’s unlimited plans are ranked #1 based on wireless speed, access, latency and cost per GB among G7 nations.
|Scenario||Current Annual Cost||Exceeds Annual Target By|
|4 TELUS Peace of Mind plans with 10GB each (and the TELUS Family Discount)||$2880||$49|
Our TELUS Peace of Mind plan for a family of four provides 26GB more data than the sample plans referenced by the Liberal Party, and provides an additional $49 in annual savings. You can view more about our Peace of Mind plans here.
