Vancouver, B.C. – TELUS is proud to announce it has been named Canada’s best major mobile carrier by New York-based PCMag, bringing home a clean sweep of the top honours in the publication’s inaugural Canadian Readers' Choice Awards 2023 and Business Choice Awards 2023. The awards, based entirely on reader rankings, rate overall satisfaction with major and MVNO carriers in Canada. TELUS’ accolades include the Readers' Choice Award for Top Major Carrier in Canada, as well as the Business Choice Award for Top Major Carrier in Canada. Public Mobile, one of TELUS’ mobility brands, also received top honours as Canada’s best digital mobile carrier, winning the Readers' Choice Award for Top Digital Carrier (MVNO) in Canada.
“Our team is honoured and grateful to receive this top recognition from PCMag and its readers,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS. “Earning these accolades directly from Canadians and businesses is a meaningful reflection of our TELUS team’s passionate efforts to put our customers first and continuously evolve our services to meet their needs. We are extremely proud of our team's ongoing commitment to delivering a world-leading mobile network experience that fuels the competitiveness of our country’s private sector, improves economic equality in our digital world, and helps us answer the most pressing social challenges in health, education and the environment for the benefit of all Canadians.”
This latest recognition from PCMag complements the countless accolades TELUS has earned over the years for its world-leading wireless network. Recently, TELUS was named Canada’s Most Awarded Network by Opensignal for the 12th consecutive time. TELUS has also previously been recognized by other independent industry-leading experts, including US-based Ookla, building on an outstanding record of achievement with respect to network excellence. Notably, these awards are based on TELUS’ national networks, inclusive of both urban and rural coverage.
Since 2000, TELUS has invested nearly $220 billion in network infrastructure, spectrum, and operations, and plans to invest $70 billion overall across Canada by 2026 to enhance the coverage, speed, and reliability of its global-leading networks and connect customers from coast to coast. In 2022, TELUS began deploying 3500 MHz spectrum across its 5G wireless network, bringing enhanced capacity, low latency and even faster speeds to TELUS customers coast-to-coast. Soon, TELUS will also introduce its 5G standalone network and bring multi-access edge computing (MEC) capabilities, further advancing IoT and industry solutions, and enabling important innovations in health, agriculture, energy, transportation and manufacturing. Additionally, TELUS has invested over $2.5 million to support more than 300 Canadian small businesses with technology, funding and advertising since 2020 through the award-winning #StandWithOwners initiative.
PCMag’s Readers' Choice Awards 2023 and Business Choice Awards 2023 are based on the results of a rigorous nationally representative public opinion poll, undertaken by over 7,500 Canadians as part of their Readers' and Business Choice 2023: The Best Mobile Phone and Service Providers in North America studies.
