Telus has announced that the wireless company will be making a significant investment in Golden in the coming year.

According to a press release, Telus will be “investing $1 million in (Golden) this year to expand coverage of wireless service, including 4G LTE – the world’s fastest wireless technology.”

“TELUS’ $1 million investment in Golden this year means more customers can take advantage of the world’s fastest wireless technology,” said Steve Jenkins, Telus general manager in the Southern Interior. “TELUS will continue to bring the latest technology to the community. The explosive use of smartphones has created the demand for the ultimate network experience and we are excited to answer

that call.”

The 2014 investment will include the installation of new wireless sites to expand the reach of LTE and enhance wireless capacity by filling in coverage gaps, and updating infrastructure to enhance network reliability.

Telus has committed to invest $2.8 billion in operations and infrastructure in British Columbia between now and the end of 2016.

“Across the province, our Telus family truly sees themselves as members of each community where we operate, and we believe our investment in local organizations is just as important as our investment in

technology,” continued Jenkins. “Our philosophy, We Give Where We Live, is exemplified by our Telus family of team members and retirees donating over $700,000 and, importantly, volunteering more than 145,000 hours to community and charitable organizations in Southern B.C. since 2000.”
