Telus is investing $10.4 million in Prince George for infrastructure, operations, and spectrum through 2027.
“This builds on the more than $59 billion Telus has invested in network infrastructure, operations and spectrum across British Columbia since 2000,” said Telus President and CEO Darren Entwistle in a release.
“This investment will help ensure that British Columbians can stay connected to what matters most, including healthcare, safe and healthy food, online education, friends and family, and the flexibility to work remotely.”
No specifics on a plan were provided, but Entwistle said the investment will ‘amplify their wireless and PureFibre networks.’
“Everyone, everywhere in BC needs access to reliable, high-speed internet to be able to work, learn, and stay in touch with friends and family,” said Provincial Minister of Citizens Services Lisa Beare.
“The investments that Telus is making, along with our government’s investments in the Connecting BC and Connecting Communities BC programs, support economic opportunities and growth across BC.”
The investment in Prince George is part of an $18.5 billion investment across British Columbia.
