Telus investing billions in network connectivity across Quebec, Alberta, Ontario and B.C.

The investments will last through 2027

Vancouver-based telecom giant Telus is investing heavy sums across four central provinces to aid “vital network connectivity, sustainability and innovation.”

Telus is investing $28 billion in Ontario, $18.5 billion in B.C., $19 billion in Alberta, and $11.5 billion in Québec through 2027.

The company has invested $63 billion in Ontario since 2000, with mirroring investments of $59 billion in B.C., $57 billion in Alberta, and $32 billion in Quebec.

“This investment will help ensure that Ontarians can stay connected to what matters most,” Darren Entwistle, Telus’ CEO, said of Canada’s most populous province.

Telus says the investments will primarily focus on its wireless and PureFibre networks. Its investment in Alberta also includes $5 million in support for wildfires in the province.
