TELUS has once again expanded their LTE coverage, this time into Cranbrook, B.C. This city only has a population of about 20,000 and they’ve now been graced with faster speeds – 75 Mbps download (average we’ve seen is between 12 to 30 Mbps). TELUS recently declared that their LTE network reaches 70% of the Canadian population, which is about 22 million Canadians.

    looks like some more CEO’s got LTE at their cottages

      There are few cottages in the coverage area. Some golf courses, maybe, but the lakes & ski hill are all either in a 3G zone, or without service at all! Telus has entered an agreement with the BC government to extend wireless services to the winding valleys in which BC’s highways are constructed. The old equipment is likely being repurposed to these areas, and the subsidy makes it easier for Telus to upgrade smaller communities to LTE.

    20,000 people in Cranbook? Give them 4G.

    750,000 people in Winnipeg? Not worth it.

    If Telus has any customers left in MB, they should take note of this.
