Internet speed basically refers to how quickly information is transmitted from the internet to your laptop or mobile device. It is usually measured in Mbps. Download speeds reveal how quickly information can be downloaded from the internet to your device. This is especially important if you are browsing social media, playing games, streaming movies or music or simply viewing your favorite YouTube videos on the internet. Upload speeds, on the other hand, refer to how quickly you can send information from your laptop or mobile device to the internet.
Telus Internet Speed Test
Telus Communications provides a range of telecommunications services and products including internet access and IPTV. The company presently is headquartered in Vancouver; it was originally based in Alberta. Telus’s primary competitors are Shaw Communications in the Western provinces, and Bell Canada and Vidéotron General Partnership in Quebec.
The demand for high-speed internet sparked an interesting tech war in Western Canada. This interesting article by the Financial Post tech desk reveals that an interesting broadband war is happening in Western Canada. Here’s an excerpt to give you a better idea.
Telus, the country’s third-largest telecommunications company, is offering a two-year contract for fiber Internet with upload and download speeds of 150 megabits per second and a data cap of 1 terabyte (1,000 gigabytes) for $47 per month for the first three months and $85 per month after. It closely matches Shaw’s offering for 150 Mbps speeds with 1 TB of data for $49.90 per month for the first year and $79.90 for the second year.
The move comes a month after Shaw launched its deal and follows a few months of heavy promotional intensity in Ontario, where BCE Inc. and Rogers Communications Inc. are duking it out for wireline customers that increasingly demand faster speeds and larger data caps to accommodate their increased use of video streaming services such as Netflix Inc.
Telus Wi-Fi connections are also becoming increasingly popular. Customers can enjoy Upload and download up to 3 times faster thanks to dual-band 2.4 GHz/5 GHz frequencies and the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology. You can also minimize dropped connections for smoother music and video streaming and uninterrupted browsing. Plus, connect more Wi-Fi devices in your home so everyone can enjoy being online.

Telus is also praised for its excellent customer service and the most reliable 4G LTE network. The company was rated as the fastest mobile network in Alberta for 2015. They’ve already started spreading out LTE-Advanced, where theoretical speeds can hit 225Mbps.
