TELUS is investing $63 million across Greater Victoria in 2021. It's part of a $13-billion infrastructure and operations upgrade across the province over the next three years.
“TELUS is proud to make this generational investment in Greater Victoria, providing the technology to connect citizens to loved ones, as well as vital resources and information as we continue to navigate the global pandemic,” TELUS President and CEO Darren Entwistle says.
The investment will enable TELUS to provide 5G network speeds in our region, and allow the company to meet increasing demand for its services.
“The enhanced connectivity being undertaken by TELUS aligns with the priority The Chamber has in place to advocate for strong and equitable access to technology for all member businesses to keep them competitive,” Chamber CEO Bruce Williams says.
Construction is underway on TELUS’s new Greater Victoria headquarters, TELUS Ocean, which will be a key economic hub in our region’s growing tech and innovation ecosystem. TELUS Ocean is on track to open in 2024.
