Telus has today announced an investment of $38 million to deploy its PureFibre and 5G networks in 20 additional communities in the Capitale-Nationale region.
Combined with an additional contribution of over $1 million from the governments of Quebec and Canada, the investment will bring direct access to optical fibre to more than 2,000 additional families and businesses in the Portneuf RCM and Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures by September 2022.
The communities of Deschambault, Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Saint-Casimir, and Saint-Thuribe will have access to the superior bundle of Telus residential products and services, including a vast selection of connected devices for healthcare and for the home.
“We are making the future friendly by putting our technology at the service of our communities,” said Marie-Christine D’Amours, Vice-President of Telus. “Our 500 team members in the Capitale-Nationale region are committed to actively continuing the deployment of our networks across Quebec.”
“This announcement marks a major step forward for Quebec,” says Jean-Yves Duclos, President of the Treasury Board and federal MP for the riding of Québec. “Together, we will ensure that every household in the Portneuf RCM has access to high-speed Internet by September 2022.”
Telus plans to invest over $53 billion in Canada by 2024, including $9 billion in Quebec’s economy.
