Telus hangs up on Amp'd Canada

After four months in operation, Amp'd Canada is following the lead of its U.S. parent company and closing down shop after its carrier partner Telus announced it would shut down the service. MVNO Amp'd recently filed for Chapter 11 and terminated its services earlier this week.

According to reports, Amp'd Mobile Canada subscribers can still make calls and retrieve messages but content services will soon be offline. Once the content goes offline, Telus plans on contacting Amp'd's subscribers about switching over to its plans directly.
