Telus announced on Wednesday its PureFibre X internet service is now available in Edmonton, Alberta, along with the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley in British Columbia.
The telco says this “groundbreaking” faster internet tier offers symmetrical download and upload speeds of 2.5 Gbps. Pure Fibre X Internet plans include hardware that supports Wi-Fi 6 to ensure the fastest internet speeds in your home.
“We are proud to be the first major Internet provider in Canada to deliver this powerful connectivity to our customers’ homes, particularly at a time when our customers need to learn, work, or operate their businesses from home,” said Zainul Mawji, Executive Vice-president and President of Home Solutions and Customer Excellence, in a statement.
Telus says its PureFibre network offers 100 pure fibre-to-the-home, and the company’s website emphasizes this when comparing its advantages over western Canadian rival Shaw.
“PureFibre X unlocks the future potential for connected homes and gives immersive technologies, such as augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR), the capability to reach its full potential,” added Telus in its press release.
