The PureFibre difference
See why TELUS PureFibre® is the fastest internet in Western Canada.
The difference between TELUS and everyone else
TELUS PureFibre Internet is a fibre optic cable direct to your home. With PureFibre, your internet is only your internet.
With other providers, their fibre cable ends before it gets to your home. It’s split and shared with neighbours, meaning multiple households compete for the same bandwidth and connection.
Having your own internet matters
You’re on a video conference and suddenly your screenshare won’t load. Turns out, it’s now peak internet hours – your neighbours are home streaming shows, gaming and scrolling their feeds.
This happens when internet cables and connections are shared amongst a neighbourhood, and when download and upload speeds aren’t fast enough to handle all the connectivity at once. Direct, fast internet lets you be online without having to worry who else is, too.
Download and upload speeds
Download speed is all about receiving data. It’s for:
Upload speed is all about sending data. It’s for:
Sending large files (like photos)
Online video gaming
Compare for yourself
Most internet service providers have “asymmetrical” plans, with upload speeds being much lower than download speeds. PureFibre plans are “symmetrical.” Upload and download speeds are the same because only TELUS offers a 100% fibre optic connection that runs direct to your home.

You get choice with TELUS
Find the speed for you
With PureFibre, eligible homes can get symmetrical speeds up to 2500 Mbps. Though not everyone needs that. No matter which plan you sign up for, you’ll get an internet connection that’s always reliable, even during peak hours when everyone is video calling, streaming, and gaming. Not sure how fast your internet is now?
How you get the good stuff
Our next-gen Wi-Fi 6 hardware, a router with tri-band technology, distributes the signal throughout your house, ensuring you have a strong, consistent connection in every room on every device. Wi-Fi Plus is an option if you need more coverage with customized installation and support.
Connecting to PureFibre
Having a fibre cable connection to your home generally requires installation on your property. Working with your existing utilities layout we either bury it or hang that connection overhead.

Once we’ve connected to your home, we can move on to installation options inside your home (Self Install, Virtual Install, or In-Person Install).
