Telus Ranked Fastest Internet Service Provider in Canada by Ookla and PCMag

Telus says it has won two fastest internet service provider (ISP) in Canada awards, with new victories coming from studies performed by American companies Ookla and PCMag.

Seattle-based Ookla said Telus led its ISP rivals with Speed Score of 72.11, while average download speeds were at 87.31 Mbps and upload at 13.04 Mbps.

“The achievements from U.S.-based PCMag and Ookla recognize our Canadian network superiority, and solidify the strength of TELUS’ networks across the country, particularly during a time when Canadians have increasingly relied on internet and mobile networks to work and learn remotely and stay connected to loved ones and vital information,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO, TELUS, in an issued statement to iPhone in Canada.

“Knocking Bell Canada from the top of the heap after two years, Telus is the new speed master in Canadian internet. The Vancouver-based company’s speed improvements—made possible thanks to a rollout of fiber optics that began 20 years ago—has paid off handsomely for the company and Telus customers alike,” explained PCMag.

Telus notes in 2020 its other accolades include recognition from Opensignal for tying the world’s top spot when it comes to mobile network speeds.
