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.
