TELUS this week made a number of announcements about the ongoing expansion of its LTE network.
This expansion of TELUS’ 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network coverage means customers in these communities can take advantage of dramatically faster wireless Internet speeds when surfing the web, reading emails or accessing the latest chart topping music and social media sites.
New markets announced this week, alongside Winnipeg, are:
- Saskatchewan: Yorkton, Weyburn, Prince Albert
- Newfoundland: Corner Brook
- Ontario: Parry Sound, Sault Ste. Marie, Chatham, Grand Bend, Stratford and Tillsonburg
Customers can select from a range of LTE-enabled devices to take advantage of the faster speeds that the LTE network brings. These include recently launched smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4, BlackBerry Q10 and HTC One, tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE and data sticks like the Huawei E397 4G LTE Mobile Internet Key.
In most markets, users can expect to see average download speeds of between 12 to 25Mbps and peak download speeds of up to 75Mbps. Saskatchewan will see somewhat slower speeds, between 10 to 15Mbps on average.
The TELUS LTE network covers more than 70 percent of Canada’s population across some 170 markets.
