TELUS Is North America’s Fastest Mobile Network According Ookla

TELUS is proud to announce that our mobile network has earned the title of North America’s  Fastest Mobile Network and for the ninth consecutive time, named Canada’s Fastest Mobile Network from Seattle-based Ookla®. Ookla compared user-initiated tests from all the major mobile carriers in Canada to determine who showed the fastest mobile network speeds. As Canadians continue to depend on a reliable and robust network to stay connected to friends and family, work and learn remotely, and watch and listen to their favourite content, TELUS continues to deliver with a Speed Score™  of 90.18 and average speeds of 82.44 Mbps for download and 8.18 Mbps for upload.

TELUS’ wireless and wireline networks have been serving Canadians with the highest quality and connectivity excellence throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. With significantly more Canadians working and learning from home over the last 23 months, TELUS has accelerated investments in new technologies to further enhance our network reliability, resiliency and world-leading performance standards to ensure our customers have a seamless, robust and reliable experience. 

Powered by a significant $54 billion investment in infrastructure and operations through 2024, TELUS continues to expand its 5G network, now reaching 70 per cent of the Canadian population. The evolution of 5G will allow us to connect more than 30 billion life-changing devices, supercharge drones with sensors for improved crop management, make autonomous vehicles smarter and safer, and evolve industrial automation – and that is only the beginning. It is estimated that 5G will create 250,000 jobs and contribute $150 billion to Canada’s economy over the next 20 years.  

The recognition from Ookla complements the countless accolades TELUS has earned over the years in respect to their world-leading wireless network. In 2021 alone, TELUS has been recognized by other independent industry-leading experts, including UK-based Opensignal, Victoria-based Tutela and New York-based J.D. Power, building on an outstanding record of achievement with respect to network excellence. Notably, these awards are based on TELUS’ national networks, inclusive of both urban and rural coverage.
