Telus will be rolling out its first wave 5G network in Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, and the Greater Toronto Area, and will continue to expand to an additional 26 markets across Canada throughout the remainder of the year.
Telus 5G will be available at no additional cost on Telus Peace of Mind plans with endless data and no overage fees.
“Our team understands the critical importance of connectivity for all Canadians, particularly given the new reality imposed by the global health emergency,” says Darren Entwistle, President and CEO, Telus. “As the first phase of our 5G rollout, we are pleased to offer citizens access to the next generation of wireless technology that will profoundly enhance the way we connect to information, resources and one another.”
Telus also announced today it has selected Samsung as a network infrastructure partner, with the goal to provide transformational 5G mobile services for Canadians. Telus previously announced it is also working with Ericsson and Nokia as partners in building its 5G network.
With the new network, peak speeds will reach 1.7Gbps. Telus’ 5G network will support the latest 5G devices, including the Samsung Galaxy 5G S20 series, LG V60 ThinQ 5G Deal Screen, and Motorola Edge+.
