Telus investing $800,000 in Nelson

“These days it’s not uncommon for families to have more than ten wireless devices amongst them.”

Telus says it will spend $800,000 on new communications infrastructure in Nelson this year to meet growing demand for high-speed Internet services.

The company says it will upgrade every wireless site in the community to 4G LTE as part of a commitment to invest $4 billion in BC through 2018.

“Telus has invested nearly $4 million in Nelson in the last two and a half years as the demand for Internet and wireless services continues to explode,” said Steve Jenkins, general manager for the southern interior. “These days it’s not uncommon for families to have more than ten wireless devices amongst them.”
