TELUS introduced their Clear Choice Rate Plans back in November which saw the removal of the dreaded System Access Fees (SAF) and the carrier 911 fees. Telus also states “the price you see is the price you pay”… with this news customers will be happy to know that increases are on the way.

Checking out their site today we found an updated terms of service and on March 4th, 2010 TELUS states that “Your monthly fee will also increase by $5 if you currently subscribe to any of the following features: Call Canada 30, Nationwide 30, North America 35, or Unlimited Web, Email and Instant Messaging.”

These changes are for consumer and business clients… and are an average of about 15% increase. In addition, local and long distance charges will be increasing as well… to a tune of $0.10 per minute.
