Princeton, B.C. – TELUS is investing $300,000 in Princeton this year to enhance its wireless and wired broadband Internet coverage for area residents and businesses.
“TELUS’ $300,000 investment means people and businesses right here in Princeton will have more access to the Internet and enhanced wireless services,” said Steve Jenkins, TELUS general manager for the Southern Interior. “The demand for advanced communications services is exploding in Princeton, and TELUS is committed to bringing the latest technology, both wired and wireless, to the community.”
This significant investment is part of a $3 billion, three-year commitment to invest in B.C. made last year and builds upon the $29 billion TELUS has already invested in operations and technology throughout the province since 2000. By the end of this year TELUS will have invested $500,000 in new technology and infrastructure in Princeton since 2011.
TELUS’ investment in communities extends past providing customers with world-class technology. As members of every community TELUS services, TELUS, our team members and retirees give where we live, supporting grassroots and community organizations across B.C.
“At TELUS we truly see ourselves as members of each community where we operate across B.C., and we recognize our investment in local organizations is as important as our investment in technology and infrastructure,” continued Jenkins. “Our simple philosophy,
We Give Where We Live, has encouraged our TELUS family of 25,000 employees and retirees in B.C. to donate over $100 million and, more importantly, volunteer 2.66 million hours to community and charitable organizations since 2000.”
The capital investment disclosed in this release is consistent with TELUS’ overall capital expenditure guidance for 2013.
