Telus: Our 4G LTE network covers 61% of the Canadian population

As Telus expands its 4G LTE network coverage to Newmarket, Aurora, Kanata, Nepean, and more -- it now claims that it covers 61% of the population.
November 5, 2012

Telus has some good news to share for folks who need a blazing fast mobile Internet connection in their lives, the kind that only LTE can provide.

Although it wasn’t the first to offer 4G LTE wireless service, the carrier has been aggressively expanding its LTE network coverage in the country. The latest expansions see Telus’ 4G LTE network covering 61% of the Canadian population. That’s roughly 20 million happy Canadians.

For Telus subscribers who live in Kanata, Nepean, Orleans, and Cumberland – you’ll be glad to hear that the LTE service has gone live in those cities. But the expansion won’t stop across the Ottawa region, as “more than 65 percent of Ontario residents are expected to have access” to the high-speed wireless Internet access by the end of the year.

The 4G LTE switch has also been turned on in Newmarket and Aurora. If you own any of the latest 4G devices on Telus, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, the HTC One X, the Samsung Rugby LTE, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE – you should be seeing those LTE signal bars on the device when you’re in the neighborhood.
