Telus to invest $6.5 million in Langley

Telus will invest $6.5 million in Langley in 2012 to expand 4G LTE — the fastest wireless technology in the world — to the community and introduce Optik TV to even more homes.

“The demand for wireless services is exploding in Langley and Telus is committed to making investments in infrastructure and technology to better serve our customers and community,” said  John Leckman, director of Customer Solutions Delivery.

This significant investment is part of $3 billion in infrastructure upgrades being made across B.C. through 2014 and builds upon the $26 billion Telus has already invested in operations and technology throughout the province over the last 10 years.

The $6.5 million investment includes:

• Extending its new 4G LTE network to Langley. Telus 4G LTE network supports manufacturers’ rated peak download speeds of up to 75 megabits per second (Mbps), with an expected average of 12 to 25 Mbps.

• Extend Optik TV to more Langley homes this year. By the end of 2012 Telus will expand the reach of its Optik TV service to reach 1.3 million B.C. households. At the end of 2011 Telus had 509,000 TV customers, adding 56,000 in the final three months of the year.
