Telus is launching a new tier of its home Internet to PureFibre X customers in Alberta and British Columbia. Offering what Telus says will be the “fastest speeds in Western Canada,” the service will offer symmetrical upload and download speeds of 3.0 Gbps.
“As a company with deep roots in Western Canada, we’re incredibly proud of our proven track record of putting customers and communities here first,” says Zainul Mawji, Executive Vice President and President of Telus Consumer Solutions. “With PureFibre X 3.0 gigabit Internet, Telus is continuing to provide leading Internet speeds and a seamless Wi-Fi experience so more of our valued customers can stay connected to the people and information that matters most.”
The PureFibre X 3.0 gigabit Internet plan includes next-generation Wi-Fi 6 hardware. By combining Wi-Fi 6 technology with PureFibre X, households will experience even faster Internet speeds on more devices, says Telus, allowing individuals and families to seamlessly enjoy gaming, surfing the web, video calling, working and learning from home, and streaming in 4K.
Telus says its PureFibre network also provides significant sustainability benefits. The fibre optic technology uses less energy to transmit data compared to traditional copper-based networks, resulting in a lower carbon footprint and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Further, the network’s new speed tier unlocks the future potential for connected homes and offers an integrated experience where every member of the household can stay connected on multiple devices simultaneously without experiencing buffering or lagging like with lower speed tiers.
Since 2000, TELUS has invested nearly $240 billion in network infrastructure, spectrum, and operations, and plans to invest $81 billion overall across Canada by 2027 to enhance the coverage, speed, and reliability of its global-leading networks and connect customers from coast to coast. Additionally, 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.
The PureFibre X 3.0 gigabit Internet starts from $115 per month on a two-year plan.
