TELUS is coming off a few major investment announcements. Yesterday it declared a $700 million infrastructure investment into Alberta, this morning it was a cool $3 billion heading for development in British Columbia. In addition, Manitoba seems to be receiving some of TELUS’ good fortune as the province will be receiving an influx of $17 million this year. TELUS notes that they’ll be bringing LTE to the region.
Michael Sangster, TELUS vice-president, said “This year’s $17 million investment brings our customers in Manitoba the fastest and most reliable wireless technology available in the world.” In an email to us TELUS reps stated “we are rolling out 4G LTE in Manitoba this summer starting with sites in downtown Winnipeg.” For those looking for the coverage, TELUS’ site currently shows the above LTE Winnipeg coverage map.
