It’s unclear how many customers the acquisition impacts and if it went through regulatory approval.
Additionally, Telus confirmed it also overtook a second ISP, Altima, in June 2022.
“As part of our commitment to bring Canadians innovative and connected products and services that enhance their lives, we integrated the Altima and Start.ca customer networks with Telus,” the company told MobileSyrup.
Both Altima and Start.ca serve Ontario residents.
