Telus is investing $350,000 in Vanderhoof this year to further expand and enhance its wireless and wire-line networks, part of the company’s $670 million infrastructure investment across British Columbia in 2011.

This year’s network investment builds upon the $24 billion Telus has invested in its operations and technology in the province in the last 10 years.

“This year, right here in Vanderhoof, Telus will invest $350,000 in our world-class wireless network and improve Internet speeds for local businesses and households,” said Jeff Cooper, manager of Customer Solutions Delivery for the community in a press release. “Not only are we proud to serve our customers every day of the year, our Telus team members in Vanderhoof are proud to give where we live and do our part to help build a better community for us all.”

In 2011, Telus will continue to invest in its Optik TV and high-speed Internet services as it lays thousands of kilometres of fibre optic lines to support growing demand in B.C.

The company will also deliver British Columbians access to even better and faster wireless broadband services by installing almost 80 new wireless sites and introducing HSPA+ Dual Cell technology, one of the most advanced wireless technologies in the world.

 

“Our planned $670 million investment this year in advanced communications technology continues Telus’ proud history of providing British Columbians with access to telecommunications and entertainment services that are the envy of the world,” said Darren Entwistle, Telus President and CEO. “This year, Telus will continue to bring the innovations of Optik TV and faster Internet speeds to even more British Columbians. We will continue to bring British Columbians faster wireless broadband services as we introduce HSPA+ Dual Cell technology, one of the most advanced wireless technologies in the world, to more communities. Telus is also committed to working with all levels of government in B.C. to advance the provision of life-changing healthcare and education services over our networks.
