Telus on Friday announced an investment of roughly $2 million in the Mékinac and des Chenaux regional county municipalities (RCMs) in Quebec this year, to accelerate the deployment of its PureFibre and 5G networks.
The investment from Telus is aimed at deploying the PureFibre network to more than 1,200 families and businesses in Saint-Prosper, Saint-Stanislas, and Saint-Adelphe, in Quebec. The carrier will continue investing next year to bring high-speed service to even more premises in Mékinac and des Chenaux.
“Wireless connectivity will spur our community’s ambitions and will give us the technology tools we need to attract families and businesses and boost our economy,” says Paul Labranche, mayor of Saint-Adelphe. “We are looking forward to this new investment by Telus.”
“Our 6,000 team members across the province are committed to actively continuing the deployment of our networks across Quebec, and driving the economic recovery of our regions,” says Marie-Christine D’Amours, Vice President of TELUS, Consumer Solutions and Customer Experience for Quebec.
“To date, 93 per cent of businesses and families in the area we serve have access to our PureFibre network, and we continue to invest jointly with the governments in order to reach 99 per cent of homes by the end of 2022.”
This expansion will also bring the Telus 5G network to select communities in the region, including in Saint-Tite, providing access to download speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps.
