TELUS investing $22 million into Manitoba, will bring 42 Mbps download speeds

Just days before MTS finally launches their long-awaited now-called “4G” network, TELUS has gone out and announced they will be investing $22 million in Manitoba this year with their own “4G” network. In a press release TELUS stated they’ll expand beyond the Winnipeg and into Brandon, Selkirk, Steinbach, Portage la Prairie and Victoria Beach.

“In 2011, TELUS will continue to deliver customers in Manitoba even better wireless broadband services on Canada’s fastest coast-to-coast 4G wireless network*. TELUS currently offers extremely fast manufacturer rated peak download speeds up to 21 megabits per second and recently announced a HSPA+ Dual Cell upgrade which offers speeds up to 42 megabits per second** in Winnipeg and many other urban centres.”

Those two asterisks above are fine print that says “**Speed may vary due to the device being used, network congestion, distance from the cell site, local conditions and other factors.”
