C$700 million 4.95 per cent Notes due May 15, 2014 being redeemed a year early

VANCOUVER, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - TELUS announced today its intention
to exercise its right to redeem, in whole or in part, its Canadian dollar
denominated $700 million 4.95 per cent Notes due May 15, 2014 a year early, on
May 15, 2013 (the "Notes", CUSIP # 87971MAJ2). The Notes were issued in May
2009. The redemption price will be based on the Government of Canada Yield, as
defined in the trust indenture pursuant to which such Notes were issued.
Note-holders will also receive the regularly scheduled semi-annual interest
payment on May 15, 2013.

TELUS plans to finance the redemption through a new debt issue and/or funds
available under its existing credit facilities. Unanticipated developments or
circumstances beyond TELUS' control could affect its intended redemption of
the Notes and there is no assurance that the redemption will be completed.
TELUS will only become obligated to complete the redemption once it gives
notice of redemption in accordance with the governing trust indenture. This
notice must be issued not less than 30 nor more than 60 days prior to the
anticipated redemption date of May 15, 2013. TELUS will make an announcement
as to the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed and the redemption date
when it gives notice of redemption.

an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of these
securities.
