TELUS announced three key investments totalling C$65.5 billion today: C$19 billion in Alberta, C$18.5 billion in British Columbia and C$28 billion in Ontario.

These investments are aimed at building and developing network infrastructure, operations, and spectrum across the above-mentioned provinces over the next five years.
