Telus commits $10 billion to network expansion in Quebec • iPhone in Canada blog


Telus has announced a significant investment of over $10 billion to expand and improve its network infrastructure and operations in Quebec over the next five years.

This plan is part of a broader commitment to invest $73 billion across Canada by 2028 to develop infrastructure, improve sustainability and advance network technology.

“At Telus, we know that a reliable and high-performing network is essential to keeping Quebecers connected to the people, information and resources that matter most,” said Darren Entwistle, president and CEO of Telus. “That's why we're investing more than $10 billion in network infrastructure, operations and spectrum in Quebec over the next five years, bringing our total commitment across Canada to $73 billion by 2028.”

Since 2000, Telus said it has invested over $35 billion in Quebec to develop network infrastructure, operations and spectrum, including its 5G and PureFibre networks.

Telus is also working with the Government of Quebec and the CRTC on two grant programs to expand its 5G network to rural communities in eastern Quebec and Chaudière-Appalaches. The company plans to create nearly 80 new cell sites to expand connectivity.

In addition, Telus integrates ORAN technology to create more reliable and faster connections while reducing energy consumption. The company says it uses AI and advanced analytics to plan the construction of new infrastructure to optimize coverage and network performance.

Earlier this week, Telus also announced its plans to invest $17 billion in BC to similarly expand its networks and more.
