Three for Three! PCmag named Telus as the fastest network nationally
For the last 5 years, PC Magazine has conducted network performance tests across Canadian carriers and published their findings in a report called Fastest Mobile Networks Canada. This summer, PCMag took a cross-country road trip to test how fast Canada’s wireless networks are from a real-world customer perspective. The great news? In PCMag’s 2017 report, TELUS has been ranked as the fastest wireless network nationally. Even more exciting, we also earned the distinction of being the fastest network in a number of key markets across Canada including Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Winnipeg, Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City, Montreal, Fredericton and Prince Edward Island.
This recognition by PCMag comes on the heels of TELUS’ recent best-in-class network awards from both J.D. Power Awards and OpenSignal. Together, these results confirm the exceptional network experience that we provide our customers. It also means our customers across the country enjoy the best speeds whether they’re watching Optik on the Go, uploading photos to Instagram or sharing videos from game night.
Customer research shows that network performance and perception is a top reason why customers’ choose their provider. So we’ve been communicating our Friendly Feels Good network message to clearly promote the fact that we have the fastest and largest network in Canada. It is crucial to keep our ranking as the fastest wireless network as we progress our wireless strategy and evolve to state-of-the-art network technologies including 5G.
