Telus Launches 'Travel Tracker' to Monitor Roaming Data Usage in Real-time

Telus has launched a new service that allows its eight million subscribers to closely monitor data usage when roaming outside of Canada.

The Telus "Travel Tracker" is a web portal accessibly from any 4G device. The tracker monitors data usage in real-time, automatically calculating roaming costs.

In September Telus, along with Bell and Rogers, slashed roaming rates by roughly 50%, thanks to continued pressure from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.

The Travel Tracker can be access here when roaming.
