TELUS' 4G LTE wireless service launches in Fredericton

Fredericton is now home to the fastest wireless technology in the world 
FREDERICTON, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - TELUS today announced it is offering service 
on Canada's largest 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless network to customers 
in Fredericton. This expansion of TELUS' 4G LTE network coverage means that 
even more customers in Atlantic Canada can experience dramatically faster 
downloading and uploading speeds when surfing the web, reading emails or 
accessing the latest chart topping music and social media sites. 
TELUS' blazing fast 4G LTE service now covers more than 70 per cent of the 
Canadian population across approximately 170 markets. 
"TELUS is committed to offering the best experience for our customers and 
today's launch of our 4G LTE service in Fredericton is an excellent example of 
how we're delivering on that promise," said Ken Power, director of sales, 
TELUS. "With a 4G LTE device like the new BlackBerry Q10 or Samsung Galaxy S4, 
our customers right here in Fredericton will have the fastest wireless 
Internet at their fingertips just in time for summer. And, the TELUS Network 
Experience app ensures the ultimate 4G LTE experience by making it even easier 
for customers to report service issues while on-the-go from their mobile 
Customers can download the TELUS Network Experience (TNE) application for free 
through app stores on 4G phones including Android, iPhone and BlackBerry 
smartphones other than BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 devices. However, TNE 
will be available on BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones in the 
coming months. 
4G LTE is rapidly emerging as the new standard for wireless technology around 
the world, with most new handsets built to take advantage of its superior 
speed. TELUS customers can already experience the full capabilities of TELUS' 
4G LTE network on popular devices such as the recently launched Samsung GALAXY 
S4, BlackBerry Q10, HTC One, and BlackBerry Z10. Other LTE-enabled devices in 
our lineup include: Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung GALAXY Note II, Samsung 
Rugby LTE, Samsung ATIV S, LG Optimus G, HTC One X+, as well as the Huawei 
E397 4G LTE Mobile Internet Key and Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE. 
TELUS' 4G LTE network supports manufacturers' rated peak download speeds of up 
to 75 megabits per second (Mbps), with an expected average of 12 to 25 Mbps. 
This means downloading a 600 megabyte album of songs with a 4G LTE-capable 
device will take only three and a half to seven minutes and a 1.2GB HD movie 
from iTunes will take between seven and 14 minutes. Importantly, if TELUS 
customers travel outside of 4G LTE network coverage areas, they will move 
seamlessly from 4G LTE to the existing 4G HSPA network with no disruption of 
4G LTE is the latest evolution in TELUS' wireless network technology plan made 
possible by the 2009 launch of its coast-to-coast 4G HSPA wireless network 
service. Today this network reaches more than 97 per cent of Canadians. Since 
2000, TELUS has invested more than $30 billion to bring Canadians some of the 
most advanced wireless networks in the world. 
Additionally, TELUS is putting customers first and embracing new ideas to make 
the TELUS experience even better. By listening to customers, TELUS has not 
only launched Canada's first network experience mobile application to report 
network issues, it has also eliminated activation fees and dramatically 
simplified its entire fee schedule. This builds on a series of improvements 
where TELUS has also eliminated carrier 911 and system access fees on all its 
Clear and Simple rate plans; reduced bill shock with Flex Data Plans, Data 
Notifications and travel roaming packages; added Caller ID and Voicemail as 
standard on all TELUS rate plans; simplified device pricing with Anytime 
Upgrades; and revolutionized mobility contracts by introducing a Device 
Balance instead of a contract termination fee.
