Telus investing $3 million in new infrastructure and facilities in Sylvan

A $3 million investment in new infrastructure and facilities in Sylvan Lake will allow Telus to offer

A $3 million investment in new infrastructure and facilities in Sylvan Lake will allow Telus to offer “even more access to faster internet, the world’s most advanced wireless technology, and our Internet-based television service, Optik TV,” according to Fred Weinheimer, general manager, Telus customer solutions delivery.

The investment is part of a $700 million plan for Alberta this year.

Once the work is complete Telus will have invested $3.5 million in Sylvan Lake since 2009.

“Our sustained investment in technology and infrastructure in Sylvan Lake and across Alberta has already made us one of the most connected communities anywhere in the world,” added Weinheimer. “This year Telus continues that legacy, once again getting to work to connect even more Albertans to advanced communications infrastructure and all the benefits it creates.”

Another facet of Telus is its investment in local organizations. “At Telus we recognized our investment in local organizations is as important as our investment in technology and infrastructure,” said Weinheimer, in a media  release. “Our simple philosophy, We Give Where We Live, has encouraged the Telus family of team members and retirees to contribute $60,000 to charitable and community organizations in Sylvan Lake since 2000.”
