Canada : TELUS invests $350,000 to bring world s fastest wireless technology to Fort St. John [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TELUS has invested $350,000 to bring the world s most advanced and fastest wireless technology to customers in Fort St. John. Called 4G LTE, the new technology offers internet speeds two to three times faster than the HSPA+ technology most customers use today.
TELUS is rolling out 4G LTE to more than 80 per cent of British Columbians by the end of the year.
TELUS is committed to providing the best service to our customers, and that includes bringing the community of Fort St. John the fastest wireless technology available in the world today, said Chris Jensen, TELUS General Manager for Northern British Columbia. With a 4G LTE device like the Samsung Galaxy S III or Note II, TELUS customers in Fort St. John will have the fastest wireless internet at their fingertips, as fast as their home internet connection but on their smartphone, tablet, or internet key. We are continuing to expand this new technology, community by community, so that by the end of the year more than 80 per cent of B.C. residents will have access. 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, which varies with distance from a wireless site and any obstacles. TELUS customers will experience dramatically faster downloads when surfing the web, reading emails or getting the latest chart topping music when using TELUS 4G LTE services. Downloading a 600 megabyte album of songs with a 4G LTE-capable device will take just 3.5 to 7 minutes and a 1.2GB HD movie from iTunes will take between 7 and 14 minutes. Importantly, if TELUS customers travel outside of 4G LTE network coverage areas, they will move seamlessly from 4G LTE to the existing 4G HSPA network with no disruption of service.
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.
