TELUS announced today that it has been recognized in Tutela’s Canada State of Mobile Networks Report April 2020, winning three of the national awards for Core Consistent Quality, Download Throughput, and Latency, and tying for Excellent Consistent Quality. Canada also places first for 4G Download Speeds according toOpensignal’s Mobile Experience report during the COVID-19 pandemic. The achievements solidify the strength of TELUS’ wireless network across the country, which has proven more critical than ever as Canadians rely on mobile networks to stay connected to loved ones and vital information during these unprecedented times.

Opensignal is monitoring global trends, and in particular, the effect of increased use of mobile telecom during the COVID-19 pandemic. They highlight that there is a sharp increase in mobile data consumption globally. Their report shows that Canada’s networks are continuing to operate very well. Canada is by far the fastest across 45 countries tested for 4G download speeds for mobile experience and had virtually no change between January, and the last week of March, when all Canadians were following social distancing protocols.

TELUS’ wireless and wireline networks continue to serve Canadians well during COVID-19. Usage has spiked considerably as Canadians stay home and keep connected to school, work, and friends and family. We continue to grow and maintain capacities that support TELUS’ strict network resiliency and world class performance standards to ensure that our customers have a seamless, un-interrupted experience in these challenging times.

The recognition from Tutela accompanies the significant, sustained accolades TELUS has earned over the years in respect of our world-leading wireless network. In 2019, TELUS was recognized by other industry-leading experts, including Opensignal, Ookla, J.D. Power, PCMag, and Tutela, building on an outstanding record of achievement with respect to network excellence, having earned the top spot in four out of five of the major mobile network reporting for the third consecutive year in a row or more. Notably, these awards are based on TELUS’ national networks, inclusive of both urban and rural coverage. 

Since 2000, TELUS has invested almost $200 billion in network infrastructure, spectrum, and operations to enhance the coverage, speed, and reliability of its world-class network and connect customers from coast to coast to coast. TELUS has committed to invest a further $40 billion over the next three years in critical technology components to support the roll out of 5G networks which will enhance innovation and help drive digital development across industries in a new age of hyper-connectedness.
