LordEd writes: Last month, westcoaster004 reported that Telus had started selling pornography to its cellular subscribers.

"After receiving several hundred customer complaints — most of them from Western Canada — and a number of service cancellations, Telus has decided to discontinue the service", Johannsson said.

There will be no formal announcement of the decision.
