TELUS, yet again, is investing a massive amount of money into building out their wireless coverage. Just coming off an announcement of putting $650 million into Ontario by 2015, TELUS will be giving Quebec a sweet $840 million over the next 3-years “to expand and enhance its wireless and wireline networks.”
TELUS will expand their Optik TV presence into the province, build a data centre in Rimouski, and continue with their healthcare technology initiatives. More importantly, 75 new wireless sites will be installed to expand their 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) coverage in the core of Montreal and in Quebec City by the end of 2012.
In their press release stated that “This year, TELUS will further extend our 4G LTE – the fastest wireless technology in the world – to the Montreal Metropolitan region and the Quebec City area, while bringing new wireless and broadband services to even more rural communities. Our significant growth in Quebec has been made possible because of our customers’ trust and loyalty in TELUS and our products and services.”
