Should I just upgrade to 30Mb from 25Mb?

Standalone: 5Mb = $50/m [added tier] 10Mb = $55/m (old) -> $59/m (new)[discontinued tier] 15Mb = $60/m [added tier] 25Mb = $60/m (old) -> $67/m (new)[discontinued tier] 30Mb = $70/m [added tier] 50Mb = $80/m (old) -> $85/m (new)[discontinued tier] 60Mb = $90/m [added tier] 100Mb = $90/m (old) -> $99/m (new)[discontinued tier] I see it as price gouging and not an actual downgrade of your speed since you get to keep your plan and be grandfathered with a price hike. They did it in a way where they increased enough of the old price plans that you'll feel it's cheap enough to upgrade to the new plan (excluding 5Mb/100Mb though I hear there is a 120Mb plan coming possibly). -10Mb to 15Mb is only $1 more. -25Mb to 30Mb is only $3 more. -50Mb to 60Mb is only $5 more. If you were essentially looking at the new plans compared to the old ones before the price increase, you're basically paying $10 more for just a 5Mb increase vs the old days where $10 gave you 10Mb. Remember the Xtreme upgrade? When I compare Telus standalone with Shaw: 30/2.5 with 250 cap for $70 (Shaw) 25/5 with 250 cap for $68 (Telus) You have a choice of paying $2 more for a 5Mb download increase or $2 less for a 2.5Mb upload increase. I don't know how well the quality of Telus is or how often they hound you if you go over the cap limit. Seeing as how I'm already now paying $67 for 25Mb from $60 and still getting the same quality service from previous price hikes before (as if I can get any better service than they're already providing to justify the price increase), should I just go for it or switch to some other provider?
