* Based on HSPA+ coverage on the shared network available from TELUS.
TELUS operates on Canada's fastest* coast-to-coast 4G network, which offers potential peak download speeds of 42 Mbps and 5.76 Mbps upload speeds1. That means that you can usually download a song in just a few seconds.
* Based on TELUS’ tests of data throughput speeds in large Canadian urban centres available from national HSPA+ service providers. Internet access speed provided by the network operator may vary due to the device being used, network congestion, distance from the cell site, local conditions and other factors. Speed on the Internet is beyond the wireless network operator’s control and may vary with your configuration, Internet traffic, website server and management policies, and other factors. Coverage areas are approximate. Actual coverage and network services can vary and are subject to change.

The amount of data you use per month will vary depending on what you use your mobile internet for and how ofen you use your mobile internet. Every time you download a file, checkout an app, stream a video, send an email, or play an online game you're using data, and the amount of data used will be different.
Our data calculator can help you better understand data usage and help you find a rate plan that suits your lifestyle. Plus,
our online data notification tools can help you monitor how much data you use.

† Note: These examples are approximations only. Estimates are based on the following data-per-activity assumptions: 4 KB/email; 1 MB/attachment sent; 100 KB/web page viewed; 1 MB/digital photo; 270 KB/min. of online gaming; 2 MB/min. of streaming video. For example, if each email is 4 KB, you will use all of the 500 MB after sending or receiving approximately 125,000 emails (1 GB = 1,024 MB; 1 MB = 1,024 KB). Actual data usage can vary and it is your responsibility to track and monitor your own data usage.
