Canada’s Telus To Launch LTE Network in H1 2012

Telus Communications Company will launch its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network early next year.

LTE technology supports manufacturer’s rated peak download speeds of up to 150 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of up to 70 Mbps.

Following extensive field testing and the completion of an RFP process currently underway, construction on the company’s next generation, 4G+ LTE network will begin in the latter half of this year in major urban markets across Canada, the company said in a release.

The network will operate on the Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum that Telus purchased for $882 million in Industry Canada’s auction process in 2008.
