TELUS Network Ranked Top Wireless Network in Canada by J.D. Power
TORONTO, April 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TELUS proudly announced today that it has been recognized as first in Network Quality Performance in Eastern Canada and tied for first in Ontario according to the 2020 J.D. Power Canada Wireless Network Quality Study. This achievement marks six consecutive years that TELUS has won a J.D. Power Award for its network quality across one or more of the regions evaluated, reinforcing the strength of the TELUS network across the country.
“This multi-year recognition from J.D. Power is a testament to the critical investments TELUS has made in our network infrastructure and wireless technology. With more people working, learning and spending time at home, it has never been more important for Canadians to have access to world-leading networks that keep them connected to the economic, educational and social resources that matter most,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO, TELUS. “We are incredibly proud of this achievement that marks yet another significant milestone in our relentless pursuit of wireless excellence and innovation across Canada.”TELUS’ wireless and wireline networks continue to serve Canadians extremely well during COVID-19. Usage has spiked considerably as Canadians stay home and keep connected to school, work, government support, and friends and family. We continue to grow and maintain capacities that support TELUS’ strict network resiliency and world class performance standards to ensure that our customers have a seamless, robust experience in these challenging times.Across all three regions in Canada, TELUS had the fewest problems per 100 connections, making it the best in Canada for wireless reliability. The recognition from J.D. Power accompanies the significant, sustained accolades TELUS has repeatedly earned over the years in respect of our world-leading wireless network. This year, TELUS was recognized by other industry-leading experts, including Opensignal, Ookla, and Tutela, in addition to PC Mag in 2019, building on an outstanding record of achievement with respect to network excellence. Notably, these awards are based on TELUS’ national networks, inclusive of both urban and rural coverage.Since 2000, TELUS has invested almost $200 billion in network infrastructure, spectrum, and operations to enhance the coverage, speed, and reliability of its world-class network and connect customers from coast to coast to coast. TELUS has committed to invest a further $40 billion over the next three years in critical technology components to support the roll out of 5G networks which will enhance innovation and help drive digital development across industries in a new age of hyper-connectedness.About TELUS
