    Seems kinda weird. As far as I know telus doesn't wholesale fibre so I'm not sure how you'd get their service in the city.
    TELUS is not reselling their residential FTTH service at the moment but it is a very real possibility that this company has leased dark fiber into some of the large condo/apartment buildings in the city.

    I was with Vmedia for a year until Telus came sniveling back and offered me a better deal

    FYI Mar, there are only 2 options in Calgary. FTTH/DSL from Telus or Cable from Shaw.

    Everyone else are just resellers of these 2 companies' infrastructure.

    I don't know when the lawsuit and dust settles on the ongoing wholesale rate lawsuit (https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/tel...rnet-1.5302941). But I was able lowball Shaw retention for 300Mbps service for $60/mth for 2 years before the court stopped CRTC in Sep and price sprung back. This service usually goes for around $75/mth from resellers and before the court order, they were charging only $4x.00/month.

    So you can try Shaw retention to see if they give you a sweet deal or just jump to a reseller if you hate them. But I don't think the lower reseller rate will be back unless the big telco loses in court.
    $75 for 300 down? That doesn't sound right, they're charging me $90 a month for 25 down.

    I don't do contracts for anything.
    @Mar , There's a cost to having no contract, and you are paying it. You could have much lower monthly bills with a 2 year term from Telus or shaw. Or not, the choice is yours. You should be able to negotiate below the published rates pretty easily, but even if not (knowing you), here's the current Telus rates.

    On their site Shaw has 45/month for 300 for the first 12 months then 75/month after that right now as their base rates. So your definitely getting screwed.

    It's only $75 for the second year, it's $105 regular.
