I have a funny suspicion that we probably live in the same area.
I did some testing, and I've found that all residences in my area (I tested several dozen), which seems to be bound by major streets, do not have Turbo 25 availability yet.
However, if you go one block beyond the those major streets, there is always availability.
I also think I've isolated the 2 future DSLAM locations in my area as well, so I've been going out of my way when I drive/ride home to see if there has been any new installations there (assuming they have to install a new cabinet when they finally do install the DSLAMs).
I do think that it will coming in this area. I suspect that a lot of people in this area are asking for it and would be willing to pay a little extra for more speed. However, considering all the surrounding areas already has availability, its possible that there are some technical hurdles that they have to get past first.
But I did find out some good news the last time I chatted with the Telus rep. In order to compete with the other ISPs, Telus is currently testing 50 mbps in Calgary.
