Telus Mobility has upgraded its wireless network to HSPA+ dual cell in Atlantic Canada, the company said today. The improvements in Eastern part of Canada are part of Telus' $1.8 billion plan to expand and improve service across the country.

Telus' HSPA+ dual cell network is now available to 70 per cent of Canadians coast-to-coast.

For customers in Moncton, Charlottetown, Halifax, and St. John's, the announcement will be greater download speeds for smartphone customers.

Telus' says its HSPA+ dual cell network offers manufacturer's rated peak wireless internet download speeds of up to 42 megabits per second with an expected average of 7-14 megabits per second. Actual device speeds can vary quite substantially due to the device being used, network congestion, distance from the cell site, and local conditions.

"Our investment this year will enable Atlantic Canada consumers and businesses to enjoy Telus' latest and greatest devices." said Telus VP Brent Johnston.
