Company Overview

TELUS Mobility is the second largest mobile carrier operating in Canada. Telus Mobility is a division within Telus Corp (TSX: T, NYSE: TU) which provides a wide range of communications products and services, including wireless, data, Internet protocol (IP), voice, television, entertainment and video, and is Canada's largest healthcare IT provider.

Due to the large geographic area the network must cover, a mix of frequencies are in use. Telus provides 2G GSM services over 850 and 1900 MHz, and 3G UMTS also over B2 (1900 MHz) and B5 (850 MHz) bands supporting DC-HSPA+ technology. 4G LTE was launched by the company in partnership with competitor Bell Mobility in February 2012, over the B4 (1700 MHz), later adding B2 (1900 MHz), and B7 (2600 MHz) following successful spectrum auction bids. B5 (850 MHz) LTE is also in use by the network but generally only in the region of British Columbia.

700 MHz LTE is also deployed in partnership with Bell over several bands depending on regional licencing including B12, B13, B17, and B29 (Supplemental DL). B40 (2300 MHz) LTE is deployed in limited areas (B30 is no longer in use).

TELUS launched quad-band (4C) LTE-A services in June 2017, claiming peak data rates up to 750 Mbps. Following successful 4.5G pilots, TELUS has deployed LTE-A Pro with 4X4 MIMO, 256QAM and 5C aggregation with data rates exceeding 1 Gbps. Huawei RAN support any carrier aggregation combination up to 5C.

5G laboratory trials have been conducted, with data rates exceeding 29 Gbps. TELUS expect to use the 3500 MHz band for initial 5G deployment.

TELUS announced its intention to deploy NB-IoT (LTE Cat-NB1) as its choice of LPWA network in 2015, with the network activated October 2016.

News & Developments

[Shenzhen, China, February 14, 2018] Huawei today announced they have launched an end-to-end user trial for “Wireless to the Home” (WTTx) 5G service using a specially-designed 5G CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) unit. The trial is taking place in downtown Vancouver’s “5G Living Lab,” a co-venture with TELUS, Canada’s fastest growing telecommunications company.

EDMONTON – TELUS is again advancing its network capabilities closer to 5G speeds after successfully completing a live-environment mobile broadband test using 3.5 GHz spectrum. The tests, which took place in suburban northwest Edmonton, achieved download speeds eclipsing 2 Gbps and help to demonstrate how important the 3.5 GHz spectrum is to enabling 5G networks of the future.

Vancouver – On the heels of being named Canada’s Fastest Wireless Network by PCMag, TELUS continues to push the boundaries of wireless speeds in Canada. Last week, the company successfully completed the first test of Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) on indoor and outdoor live networks in Canada.

Vancouver – TELUS, Canada's fastest growing telecommunications company, and Huawei, one of the world's largest information and communications technology companies, achieved a significant breakthrough with the successful completion of a 5G wireless connection using the global 3GPP technology standards platform.

Vancouver – As carriers around the world work towards developing the next generation of wireless technology, TELUS, Canada's fastest-growing national telecommunications company, and Huawei, one of the world's largest telecommunications and ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers are a step closer to the future after successfully achieving wireless speeds of 29
