Telus has launched PureFibre X on Thursday, in what the company says offers Canada’s fastest internet speeds, starting first in Calgary, Alberta.
PureFibre X offers download and upload speeds of 2.5 Gbps and will soon expand to other PureFibre communities in Alberta and B.C. “in the months ahead,” says Telus.
“TELUS PureFibre X enables entrepreneurs, start-ups, home-based businesses and consumers with the fastest Internet speeds available anywhere in Canada. We look forward to connecting more of our fellow Albertans in Calgary to TELUS PureFibre and supporting the community as it attracts new industries and innovators, supporting the jobs of today and those that have yet to be imagined,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS, in an issued statement.
Telus also notes it is investing $2 billion to expand its PureFibre network to over 90 per cent of homes and businesses in Calgary. The company emphasizes PureFibre is “Western Canada’s largest and only 100 per cent pure fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network,” likely a veiled jab at competitor Shaw.
