TELUS flips the LTE switch on in Charlottetown

Quick update for those TELUS customers located on Prince Edward Island, specifically in Charlottetown. TELUS’ LTE network is now live and you can expect average download speeds between 12 to 25 Mbps. TELUS has updated their coverage map and looks like the initial rollout is what you can expect to see for a while as there’s no future expansion plans listed, however, in the press release TELUS says that “additional communities will get access to 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) in the coming months, as TELUS continues to bring the technology to even more customers in the province of Prince Edward Island in 2013.”

Some of the Devices that can take advantage of TELUS LTE speeds are the new BlackBerry Z10, Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III and the LG Optimus G.

    What’s with all that marine coverage in the north?

      The signal spreads really well over water as there is nothing in it’s way to stop it so a single tower can cover a large area of water

  • Alex

    Covers more than any other province!

  • WINNIPEG

    WHEN IS WINNIPEG GOING TO GET LTE?

      Rogers said by 3Q 2013, for Bellus it’s anyone’s guess. I don’t know what’s taking so long, it may have something to do with the city restricting tower construction for non regional carriers, which would explain why MTS is the only carrier to offer it.

    Nice!! Fish have a separate coverage north of the island!!

    So, I’m with these guys and I’m like a 3 minute drive from downtown Charlottetown. The signal for LTE barely reaches past the main roads and the downtown core.

    This is great but will they be shutting it off a few weeks later like they did in moncton, new brunswick. Ive had no LTE for three weeks now.. and noone at telus can even explain why..

    All coverage in PEI is done by BELL. Telus never had and probably never will have towers in that province. So if I were you and had any questions about coverage I would direct them at Bell, even if you are a Telus customer. I have always been frustrated with the lack of coverage in PEI with any device and on any network. They only care about high population areas and in PEI that doesn’t really exist!
