TELUS network outage affects some voice and data services across Canada (Update: service returns)

As of 3:30pm ET, February 7th, TELUS is experiencing a Canada-wide service outage, with voice, SMS and data usage affected.

While we’re hearing some users still have access to the network, our outage map, courtesy of CanadianOutages.com, is showing thousands of customers are affected in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and parts of Atlantic Canada.

Presumably, Koodo users should also be affected. Let us know if your TELUS service is down.

We’ll update this page when we have more.
Update 3:39pm: A TELUS representative has released this statement: “Some TELUS customers are experiencing issues with their wireless voice service. We are working to get this fixed as soon as possible.”
