In a statement to IT World Canada, Telus said, “As part of our commitment to bring Canadians innovative and connected products and services that enhance their lives, we integrated the Altima and Start.ca customer networks with Telus’ in June 2022 and January 2023 respectively, giving customers access to (our) global-leading wireless network, suite of home automation and security, health and entertainment products and services.”
