Following extensive field testing in 2011 and the completion of an RFP process currently underway, construction on TELUS' next generation, 4G+ LTE network will begin in the latter half of 2011 in major urban markets across Canada. TELUS' LTE network will operate on the Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum that TELUS purchased for $882 million in Industry Canada's auction process in 2008. TELUS believes that the timing of its planned LTE launch in 2012 is appropriate and opportune given its desire to leverage the economies of scale in the manufacturing of LTE equipment, the hardening of LTE technology for market readiness, the progression in the development of LTE-capable data devices and smartphones and the need to synchronise the higher bandwidth capabilities of LTE with the accelerating appetite of clients for data rich services.
Telus claims their rural LTE plans hinge on the upcoming 700 MHz spectrum auction.
