Canada : TELUS 4G LTE wireless network launches in Oshawa and Whitby [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TELUS is now offering the world s most advanced and fastest wireless technology to customers in Oshawa and Whitby. Additional communities will be getting access to 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) in the coming months, as TELUS continues to bring the technology to more Ontarians by the end of 2012.

Today s announcement is part of the company s $280 million investment in the Greater Toronto Area over the next three years to further expand and enhance its wireless networks.

TELUS is committed to offering the best customer experience and launching our 4G LTE service in Oshawa and Whitby is an excellent example of how we re doing that, said Johnnie-Mike Irving, managing director of Business Solutions, TELUS. With a 4G LTE device, our customers can enjoy the fastest wireless technology available in the world today we are continuing to expand this new technology, community by community, so that by the end of the year many more Ontario residents are expected to have access. It s an ambitious undertaking.

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, HTC One X, Samsung Rugby LTE, LG Optimus G, Huawei E397 4G LTE Mobile Internet Key and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE. The HTC One X+ and Samsung ATIV S will also be joining the TELUS LTE device lineup this fall. 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 rated peak download speeds of up to 75 megabits per second (Mbps), with an expected average of 12 to 25 Mbps. 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 plan made possible by the 2009 launch of its coast-to-coast 4G HSPA wireless network service. 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. Additionally, TELUS is putting customers first and embracing new ideas to make the TELUS experience better.
