TORONTO, April 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, TELUS is proud to announce its industry-leading results from Opensignal’s April 2023 Canada Fixed Broadband Experience Report, bringing home top honours in Canada’s two westernmost provinces.

It also tied for first in B.C. and Alberta for Peak Download Speed, and tied for first in Alberta for Broadband Success Rate.

“Canadians continue to value a fast, reliable connection and the consistent recognition from independent, third-party organizations, such as Opensignal, reinforces the superiority of TELUS’ world-leading broadband networks,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS. “As a company that has been headquartered in Western Canada for more than 125 years, our TELUS team is exceedingly proud of our enduring legacy of putting our customers and communities first. Indeed, this latest recognition from Opensignal demonstrates that TELUS is continuing to lead the way in providing an outstanding broadband experience in Western Canada and is a celebration of the work our team does to keep Canadians connected to the people and information that matter most. We are extremely proud of the many ways in which our wireline network is facilitating critical, transformational change in respect of health, education, teleworking, the environment and the economy. Perhaps most importantly, our world-leading networks are helping to bridge digital divides so that every member of our society has the opportunity to realize their full potential.”
This latest recognition from Opensignal complements the countless accolades TELUS has earned over the years for its world-leading networks, including TELUS’ most recent recognition from PCMag as Canada’s best mobile carrier. TELUS has also previously been recognized by other independent industry-leading experts, including US-based Ookla, building on an outstanding record of achievement with respect to network excellence.
TELUS’ PureFibre network is built with state-of-the-art fibre optics, right up to the connection point at the home or business, ensuring customers have the fastest most capable network available. With the only true all fibre network in Western Canada, TELUS delivers the best network performance available anywhere in the world, including the fastest upload and download speeds. This infrastructure not only offers unparalleled connectivity, but also delivers significant sustainability benefits. The fibre optic technology used in TELUS’ PureFibre network is much more energy-efficient compared to traditional copper-based networks. Fibre optic cables transmit data using light signals over glass strands, which require less energy to transmit data compared to copper cables. This translates into a lower carbon footprint, as TELUS’ PureFibre network requires less electricity to operate, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Since 2000, TELUS has invested nearly $220 billion in network infrastructure, spectrum, and operations, and plans to invest $70 billion overall across Canada by 2026 to enhance the coverage, speed, and reliability of its global-leading networks and connect customers from coast to coast. TELUS also has a longstanding commitment to strengthening relationships with Indigenous Peoples, including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities, acknowledging that its work spans many Traditional Territories and Treaty areas. Through public-private partnerships, 504 rural communities and 577 Indigenous lands have been enabled with TELUS' advanced broadband connectivity, positively impacting 360,000+ rural and Indigenous households and businesses.
