Telus has announced that it plans to invest hundreds of millions of dollars into its wireless networks in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta this year.
As part of its staged infrastructure investment rollout across the country, the company says that by the end of 2016 it plans to cover 99% of Alberta and Ontario, and 98% of British Columbia, with LTE signal.
Nearly $400 million of that investment will go to the Greater Vancouver area, filling in coverage gaps along popular highways, such as Highway 16 between Prince Rupert and Prince George. According to a press release issued today, the improvements are part of an agreement between Telus and the BC government, which sees the telco obliged to connect the province's population to high-speed wireless and fiber optic networks in rural areas.
Telus co-owns a wireless network with Bell, which yesterday announced it would purchase Manitoba Telecom Services for $3.9 billion.
