TELUS Launches 4G LTE in Comox, Courtenay and Campbell River


TELUS announced today (amongst the flurry of Apple news) the launch of its 4G LTE network in Comox, Courtenay and Campbell River on Vancouver Island, as part of a $1.3 million investment. The addition now brings LTE from Victoria all the way to Campbell River, with more communities to come in the next few months. By year’s end, TELUS notes it will cover 90 percent of BC’s population with LTE availability:

“We are committed to offering you the best customer experience. A key part of that promise is bringing our 4G LTE service to Comox, Courtenay, Campbell River and numerous other B.C. communities,” said Ray Lawson, TELUS general manager for Vancouver Island. “With an LTE device our customers can enjoy the fastest wireless technology available in the world today – we are continuing to expand this new technology, community by community, so that by the end of the year nearly 90 per cent of B.C. residents are expected to have access. It’s an ambitious undertaking.”

For those living on Vancouver Island in those communities, this probably comes as welcome news along with those that frequently travel from the provincial capital to Campbell River. Let us know how those network speeds are in the comments.

    Super happy about LTE speed coming to the Comox Valley. Now I can enjoy all the content on my Samsung Galaxy Note in the blink of an eye. Way to go Telus! Best combo ever! Telus LTE and Samsung. Woot!

  • Nice. Courtenay and Comox getting LTE is nice for those that travel back and forth there.

    its great that the comox valley has LTE, but its no good if the reception in most parts of comox and lazo is terrible. there was talk of a new cell tower going up but no proof of that yet.

  • Telus lte is destroying rogers ;(, my rogers iphone 5 dies in hours because i get 1 bar lte, even in a major populated area

  • there is a huge Prairie-sized hole in LTE in Canada… I’m tempted to jump to whoever fills it first.

  • Telus LTE does not work in Comox. Tried on new iPad and 2 iPhone 5 s and none will hold onto the pathetic one bar signal. Waste of time and money.
