TELUS latest Canadian carrier to launch 4G LTE, goes live Feb. 10


With Rogers and Bell already offering 4G LTE services, TELUS is arriving fashionably late to the party with the announcement that their next-gen network will go live on February 10th. The carrier plans to reach 25 million Canadians by the end of the year and will initially rollout its LTE network in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, Kitchner, Waterloo, Hamilton, Guelph, Belleville, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, and Yellowknife. With theoretical speeds of up to 75Mbps, TELUS is promising users and average downlink speed of 12 to 25Mbps. When not within the realm of 4G LTE, users will default back to HSPA+ speeds.

The new network will not be without devices. TELUS will be launching the LG Optimus LTE, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, an Ovation mobile hotspot. That’s quite a few launch devices to match the boatload of LTE coverage Canadians have access to. Three carriers utilizing the technology should make for competitive pricing plans and even better device portfolios in the future.

  1. And hopefully it doesn’t suck donkey nuts like Rogers does… nothing better than being told to fix your LTE issues by disabling LTE!
