“Our continued focus over the next four years will further extend our fibre optic network directly to thousands of Quebec homes and businesses to dramatically increase their available Internet speeds, while connecting schools and healthcare facilities to allow more innovation in how they deliver life-changing services,” said François Gratton, executive vice-president and president, Business Solutions East and TELUS Quebec.

TELUS aims to bring wireless to more rural communities and even Montreal’s metro, and expand its Internet data centre in Rimouski to meet the cloud computing and managed data needs of businesses in Québec and across Canada.
