Canada : TELUS invests $100,000 to bring world s fastest wireless technology to 100 Mile House [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TELUS has invested $100,000 to bring the world s most advanced and fastest wireless technology to customers in 100 Mile House, B.C. Called 4G LTE, the new technology offers Internet speeds two to three times faster than the HSPA+ technology most customers use today.

TELUS rolled out 4G LTE to more than 80 per cent of British Columbians in 2012 and plans to connect even more by the end of 2013.

TELUS is committed to providing the best service to our customers, and that includes offering those living in 100 Mile House the fastest wireless technology available in the world today, said Bert Braybrook, TELUS director customer service solutions for Northern British Columbia. With a 4G LTE device like the Samsung Galaxy S III or Note II, TELUS customers right here will have the fastest wireless Internet at their fingertips, as fast as your home internet connection but on your smartphone, tablet or Internet key. In addition to connecting 80 per cent of British Columbians to LTE in 2012, we are continuing to expand this new technology so that even more B.C. communities and residents will have access to 4G LTE. It s an ambitious undertaking.

4G LTE is rapidly emerging as the new standard for wireless technology in the world, with most new handsets built to take advantage of its superior speed. TELUS customers can already experience the full capabilities of TELUS 4G LTE network with the popular Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Rugby LTE, Samsung ATIV S, LG Optimus G, HTC One X+, Huawei E397 4G LTE Mobile Internet Key and Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE. Consistent with TELUS clear and simple pricing approach, current rate plans will apply to all TELUS 4G LTE customers without premium charges.

TELUS 4G LTE network supports manufacturers top download speeds of up to 75 megabits per second (Mbps), with an expected average of 12 to 25 Mbps depending on signal strength. Using 4G LTE, TELUS customers will experience dramatically faster and seamless downloads when surfing the web, reading emails or getting the latest chart topping music. For example, downloading a 600 megabyte album with a 4G LTE-capable device will only take 3.5 to 7 minutes, while a 1.2GB HD movie from iTunes will be ready for viewing in just 7 to 14 minutes. Most importantly, TELUS customers will move seamlessly from 4G LTE to the existing 4G HSPA networks when roaming out of LTE supported areas, and will have no disruption to wireless service or downloading.

4G LTE is the latest evolution in TELUS wireless network technology rollout, building on the 2009 launch of its coast-to-coast 4G HSPA wireless network. Today this network reaches more than 97 per cent of Canadians. Since 2000, TELUS has invested more than $30 billion to bring Canadians some of the most advanced wireless networks in the world.
