Telus has claimed the launch of Canada’s fastest consumer internet service, with upload and download speeds of 2.5Gbps. The ‘PureFibre X’ service is initially available in parts of Calgary, with plans to expand coverage to other locations across Alberta province and British Columbia in the coming months. In its press release, Telus also highlighted that it is aiming to connect over 90% of Calgary’s homes and businesses to its PureFibre fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network by around the end of 2023.
Telus CEO Darren Entwistle said: ‘Importantly, Telus PureFibre offers the community a globally unmatched wireline infrastructure that ensures all citizens have access to the digital tools to drive improved health, social and economic outcomes. Moreover, Telus PureFibre X enables entrepreneurs, start-ups, home-based businesses and consumers with the fastest internet speeds available anywhere in Canada. We look forward to connecting more of our fellow Albertans in Calgary to Telus PureFibre and supporting the community as it attracts new industries and innovators, supporting the jobs of today and those that have yet to be imagined.’
