TELUS yesterday announced that it has expanded 4G coverage in Manitoba. It added two new cell towers in Oakbank and Dugald and upgraded 42 existing wireless sites in and around Winnipeg to offer increased network capacity. Also covered now are the corridors along Highways 1, 7 and 75.
“We are investing millions of dollars year after year, bringing the most advanced network technologies to our customers across Canada,” said Brent Johnston, vice-president, Mobility Marketing, TELUS. “Our $22 million investment in the province this year will give Manitobans the convenience of using their TELUS wireless device in an extended zone around Winnipeg. In addition, the upgrades to our cell towers will enable even more customers to access Canada’s fastest coast-to-coast 4G network with exceptional speeds and reliability.”
TELUS earlier this year also began to deploy HSPA+ to Winnipeg.
