TELUS crowned the fastest network in the world by Opensignal for Download Speed Experience. TELUS’ average 4G LTE download speeds clocked in at a global high of 75.8 mbps, significantly faster than the 2nd fastest country in the world South Korea’s 5G network average of 59 mbps
TELUS is expanding its next-generation 5G network to Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, allowing businesses and residents to access the fastest network in Canada and the world, according to a recent industry report by UK-based Opensignal.
“This global recognition from Opensignal, in concert with our rapidly expanding next-generation 5G network, reinforces the TELUS team’s unparalleled commitment to providing Canadians with access to superior technology that connects us to the people, resources and information that make our lives better,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO, TELUS. “Our team understands that having the fastest speeds on a global basis matters as it drives the innovation that enables the diversity and competitiveness of our country’s private sector, supporting economic growth and job creation for our nation and in communities like Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. It matters because it helps us answer society’s most pressing social challenges in health, education, agriculture and the environment, while improving economic equality in our digital world. As we continue to navigate the global health emergency, Canadians can be confident that our world-leading network, with its globally leading speed and expansive coverage, will keep them connected to what matters most.”
In Opensignal’s latest report, TELUS’ average 4G LTE download speeds were recorded at a global high of 75.8 mbps, which is significantly faster than South Korea’s average of 59 mbps on their 5G networks – a country that launched 5G nationally in 2019. Furthermore, a recent PCMag report shows that TELUS 4G LTE network speeds easily outpace 5G network speeds of the United States’ top carriers and other Canadian providers. These achievements, along with the numerous, sustained accolades TELUS has earned over the years, showcase the strength and speed of TELUS’ global-leading mobile network. This wireless network leadership, and the investment and talented team that underpin it, drive our country’s innovation agenda and the resulting economic and social outcomes.
TELUS continues to strengthen its commitment to delivering an outstanding network experience to Canadians by bringing its 5G network to additional communities across the country. By the end of the year, nearly 50 communities will be able to experience the speed and quality of TELUS’ 5G connectivity, as TELUS continues to grow its 5G footprint into 2021 and beyond. TELUS’ next generation 5G network, which builds on its award-winning, fastest network in the world covering 99 per cent of the Canadian population, will drive innovation in emerging tech sectors, healthcare, agriculture, and more. World-leading speeds and expansive coverage will contribute to improved health and educational outcomes for Canadians, support environmental sustainability, enable our entrepreneurial spirit, unleash human productivity and drive economic growth, which will be key to Canada’s fiscal recovery: it’s estimated that 5G will create 250,000 jobs and contribute $40 billion annually to the country’s economy.3
“TELUS’ 5G network is built on the backbone of TELUS PureFibre technology, making our 4G LTE network the fastest and most reliable in the world,” said Tony Geheran, Executive Vice-President and Chief Customer Officer at TELUS. “While early 5G will help boost connectivity and wireless speeds like never before, the real promise of 5G is how this revolutionary technology will help businesses innovate and shape the future of the Canadian economy.”
