Telus to Spend $10 Million to Bring PureFibre Network to Chaudière-Appalaches
Telus has today announced a $10 million investment for its network infrastructure in the Chaudière-Appalaches region, rolling out its PureFibre network to 10 communities in Beauce-Sartigan, Bellechasse, Lotbinière, Montmagny and Nouvelle-Beauce RCMs.
The investment is paired with more than $13 million from the Canadian and Quebec governments in 2021 and 2022 as part of the Operation High-Speed program.
“Our 350 team members and ecosystem of partners in the Chaudière-Appalaches region are using technology to create a better future for citizens by bridging the digital divide with our world-class networks,” said Telus interim VP Nathalie Dionne.
Telus’ investment along with the committed government support will help in the deployment of the PureFibre network to 4,500 families and businesses. It will also support local organizations and vulnerable families in the Chaudière-Appalaches region.
“I am happy to learn that TELUS is investing to build and develop 5G and PureFibre networks in our area,” says Bernard Généreux, MP for Montmagny—L’Islet—Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup. “Improving communication speed is not only important, but vital for the families and the businesses in this district.
“I am very happy for the residents and families of Leclercville and Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon,” says Jacques Gourde, MP for Lévis-Lotbinière.
Telus plans to invest $70 billion in Canada by 2026 for its network infrastructure, operations, and spectrum, including $11 billion in the Quebec economy.
