Good news for residents in Manitoba as TELUS has installed new HSPA+ dual-cell towers in Selkirk, Victoria Beach and Steinbach – this brings the total coverage to reach 66% of Manitobans. Peak download speeds could see up to 42 Mbps, but TELUS notes realistic speeds are actually between 7-14 Mbps.
TELUS noted in the press release that “The new wireless coverage in Selkirk, Victoria Beach, Lockport, Ste. Anne, Steinbach and along Highway 1 to Portage la Prairie brings 4G speed and reliability to these communities. Full coverage will be available in Portage la Prairie in early 2012, with service to Brandon expected next summer.”
Perfect timing for the Samsung Galaxy SII X, or even the upcoming Galaxy Nexus in January.
