Nokia to support TELUS’ broadband rollout

13 Sep 2006

Canadian telco TELUS has awarded Finnish vendor Nokia a three-year, CAD150 million (USD134 million) contract to provide integration and installation services for its next-generation IP broadband access network. The agreement supports TELUS’ recently announced USD600 million spending plan to expand broadband network infrastructure and introduce new IP applications, including high-definition TV. Last November TELUS announced it would use Nokia equipment to build and support its IP network, including the D500 IP DSLAM multi-service broadband access platform, based on ADSL2+ technology.
