LTE (Long Term Evolution) seems to be covering Canadian soil incredibly fast these days. TELUS has continued their expansion and announced that they’ve invested $1.7 million to bring the fast speeds (average is between 12-25 Mbps) to Whistler, Squamish, Pemberton and the Sea to Sky Highway in British Columbia. TELUS also noted that they plan to continue to build-out and give 90% of the province’s population access to LTE by the end of this year.
In addition, TELUS also launched the Huawei B593 4G LTE Smart Hub, a device that’s not really mobile as you’ll need to plug it into a wall, but allows you to set-up a LTE wireless hotspot for up to 32 devices. The cost is $260 outright, or $99 on a 2-year contract.
