TELUS posted median download speeds of 76.03 Mbps in latest US-based Ookla Speedtest Global Index report  

TORONTO, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TELUS continues to be the Canadian carrier to beat for Fastest Mobile Operator, posting an impressive median mobile download speed of 76.03 Mbps in US-based Ookla’s® latest Ookla Speedtest Global Index report. The quarterly analysis uses data from Ookla’s Speedtest Global Index rankings to report on speed and network performance data in Canada and other regions. The data showcases how TELUS continues to deliver a robust and seamless wireless network experience to its customers and builds on its recent achievement in Ookla’s Q1-Q2 Speedtest Awards for Canada, achieving the leading Speed Score™ of 91.30 and being named Canada’s Fastest Mobile Network for the 10th consecutive time earlier this year.

“The consistent recognition from independent, third-party organizations, such as US-based Ookla, reinforces the superiority of TELUS’ globally leading mobile network,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS. “These latest results from Ookla reaffirm our team’s commitment of keeping Canadians connected to the people and information that matter most. We are extremely proud of the many ways in which our mobile network, with its global-best speeds, is facilitating critical, transformational change in respect of health, education, teleworking, the environment and the economy. Perhaps most importantly, our world-leading networks are helping to bridge digital divides so that every member of our society has the opportunity to realize their full potential.”

This acknowledgement also complements the countless accolades TELUS has earned over the years in respect to its world-leading wireless network. Most recently, TELUS was also named Canada’s best network for consistent mobile network quality by UK-based Opensignal. In 2021 alone, TELUS has been recognized by other independent industry-leading experts, including 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.

Since 2000, TELUS has invested nearly $220 billion in network infrastructure, spectrum, and operations, and plans to invest $70 billion overall across Canada by 2026 to enhance the coverage, speed, and reliability of its global-leading networks and connect customers from coast to coast. Soon, TELUS will also introduce its 5G standalone network and bring multi-access edge computing (MEC) capabilities, further advancing IoT and industry solutions, and enabling important innovations in health, agriculture, energy, transportation and manufacturing.
