Telus unveils LTE plans

7 Apr 2011

Telus Corp has announced plans to begin building a 4G LTE network in major Canadian cities in the second half of this year, reports Reuters. It is not clear at this stage whether the operator will deploy its own network or share with Bell Canada as it did for a national 3.5G HSPA+ network in 2009. Telus says that rollout to rural areas will depend on whether it can buy lower frequency spectrum which is due to be auctioned in 2012. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Telus finished 2010 with a 28.0% share of Canada’s wireless subscriber market, just behind Bell (29.1%) and Rogers (36.1%).
