Achievement unlocked! TELUS ranked #1 Major Internet Service Provider for Gaming by PCMag
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TELUS outflanked the competition in the 2020 PCMag Gaming Quality Index, and amongst major ISPs, has earned the title of Best Gaming ISP in Canada1. The magazine scored TELUS the lowest on combined latency – the amount of time it takes for data to travel to a server and back, and jitter – which measures the stability of latency. For gamers, this is a huge win, as mere milliseconds decide the difference between victory and defeat.
To celebrate this achievement, TELUS is offering the fastest internet speeds in Western Canada, TELUS PureFibre Gigabit Internet, including unlimited home Internet data, for only $85/mo on a two year term for new customers. With symmetrical upload and download speeds and a connection that never degrades, gamers of any skill level can get an edge on the competition. By delivering a 100 per cent fibre optic connection directly to the home, TELUS PureFibre provides an always-on connection that never slows down, even during peak hours.“Lifelike graphics, high-quality sound, and lightning-fast multiplayer gameplay have revolutionized modern gaming, and gamers need advanced connectivity that can keep pace.
