The destruction of Telus has


The destruction of Telus has begun! Primus is offering broadband Voice over IP, much like Vonage in the States. For about $35 a month, I’ll be able to get an Edmonton and a Vancouver number, so the 90% or my friends who live in those two places can call me for free (and vice versa.) This will more or less eliminate long distance charges, and when I move (as I’ll inevitably have to do), I just plug the Primus box into a high speed Net connection and hey presto, I’ve got the same two numbers. That applies even if I’m in some foreign land, as long as they have high speed Internet connections.

Now all I have to do is give Telus Mobility the boot. Anyone want to buy a LG520 phone?
