To do battle with Chat-r, for those of you who remembers it, Telus has brought back the name "ClearNet" from the late 1990s when Telus bought them out. Currently ClearNet appears to be doing battle with Chat-r.
It is appear to be servicing Alberta and BC at this moment but from the specs of the phones (2 at the moment, another android phone coming soon), it appears to be a 3G network. If you click through the site, there is a check for for "notify me when data add-on becomes available".
Rates starts at $45/month for province wide unlimited talk in BC and unlimited talk and text plans starts at $55/month
Hopefully they can bring along some reasonably priced data plans.
