Telus announced on Tuesday it has completed its $45 million PureFibre rollout in Leduc, Alberta, “dramatically increasing wireless and Internet speeds throughout the city.”
According to the telecom, over 13,000 homes and 2,000 businesses now have access to their PureFibre network with gigabit speeds. The build also saw 17 municipal sites get connected, including those for emergency responders such as the RCMP station and fire hall.
