Canadian consumers and business owners will have another LTE network choice on February 10th.

TELUS plans to launch Canada's third LTE network from Vancouver to Halifax. Other metropolitan areas receiving the new LTE service include Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Kitchener, Waterloo, Hamilton, Guelph, Belleville, Ottawa, Montreal, Québec City, and Yellowknife.

TELUS says it will continue to roll out the 4G LTE coverage across the country and other regions  eventually reaching more than 25 million Canadians by the end of the year.

Customers who want to use the service from the get-go will have the chance with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE tablet, the LG Optimus LTE smartphone and the Novatel Ovation MC679 4G LTE Mobile Internet Key.

On February 14th, the LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy Note will be available.

TELUS expects average speed of 12 to 25 Mbps across its LTE network and will keep costs the same as on the 3G network plans. Customers should expect no new rate plans or charges for the time being.
